      This American classic won the Pulitzer Prize in 1938. Exploring timeless questions about the meaning of love, companionship, life and death, Our Town tells the story of the fictional American small town of Grover's Corners, New Hampshire between 1901 and 1913 through the everyday lives of its citizens. Using metatheatrical devices, Wilder’s play offers up a microcosm of the human life cycle for our reflection.

      This classic play, about a specific community that could be any of our hometowns, asks: What makes us citizens? What makes a democracy? How are we defined by our humanity? And our community?
