Our Town by Thornton Wilder

November 5, 2014 @ 8:00 pm - November 15, 2014 @ 10:00 pm

November 5 – 9 and 12 – 15, 2014
Lauren K. Woods Theatre

A University-wide production of the classic Pulitzer-Prize winning play by Thornton Wilder, Our Town tells the universal story of small town America. Though taking place in the first decade of the 20th century and written in 1938, Our Town has consistently been hailed as a theatrical masterpiece. A New York production won the Tony Award for best revival in 1989 and an off-Broadway presentation in 2009 won accolades from critics and audiences alike and ran for nearly 3 years.  Performed with little scenery and having the character of Stage Manager directly address the audience, Our Town asks us to consider what is important in life. When Emily wants to relive a day in her life, she is told “Choose the least important day of your life; it will be important enough.”
