“ a play that celebrates the extraordinary in ordinary lives has undoubted resonance” The Guardian

Eavesdropping on Our Town – and watching ourselves growing up in ‘our town’. 

Love and marriage, birth and death. Seen from a distance they’re just the rhythm of everyday life: but when you’re caught up in the middle and they’re happening to you, they’re the whole world. Their world and our world.

Thornton Wilder’s Pulitzer Prize-winning, small-town epic of human existence is an American classic. Rich with detail and shot through with a distinctive mix of light and shade, it remains as theatrically fresh and as topical as ever

“We are everyman, everywoman, every one. …How life slips by and death creeps up, and how it gets too late way too quickly.”  WhatsOnStage
