By Thornton Wilder
Directed by Margaret Baldwin
Composer/Sound Director, Christopher HamptonHomework. First Love. Moonlight. Making Marrying and Dying. For the play’s Broadway debut in 1938, Wilder described Our Town as his attempt to present “the life of a village against the life of the stars.” To honor the play’s 80th anniversary, our production takes a fresh look at the play’s depiction of small-town American life at the turn of the 20th century. This multi-disciplinary/multi-cultural reimagining teases out connections between then and now and highlights the ties that bind our community.
