Our Town

Set in the fictional town of Grover’s Corners, New Hampshire, the play begins as a simple examination of daily life. Through the guidance of the Stage Manager, the facilitating central character, the play follows the life of Emily Webb as she grows through the normal stages of life, from her early school days all the way up to her marriage to her childhood neighbour George Gibbs. While the first two acts serve as a simple but intimate portrait of human interaction, the third act truly prompts a great deal of introspection and tenderness. Emily’s question, “Does anyone ever realize life while they live it—every, every minute?” rings inherently and eternally true. Wilder has the remarkable ability to transform an intimate, microscopic lens into a wider, telescopic lens that broadens our perspective and urges us to consider our interaction with the world around us. For that reason, Our Town will continue to be an ever relevant, formative American play.

Tickets: $16 adults, $11 students; available online and at the Spriet Family Theatre box office, 519-679-8989.
