“Our Town has proved that instead of being only a play of the moment when it was first seen, it is a play of every moment” The Guardian
Thornton Wilder’s Pulitzer Prize-winning drama is set in the fictional American small town of Grover’s Corners; a story about mortality, told through the everyday lives of its citizens
The timeless three-act play asks questions about the meaning of love, life and death by exploring the relationship between George and Emily, whose childhood friendship blossoms into romance.
John Haidar returns to direct his fourth play at Guildhall.
Please note, this production contains use of haze, depictions of suicide, drug use and weapons, and references to childbirth, depression and alcoholism. It also includes blood, smoking and sudden loud noises.
Approximate running time: 3 hours, including two intervals.
