Our Town

Our Town

Thornton Wilder’s Pulitzer Prize-winning Our Town continues to leave audiences awestruck with wonder and a shared sense of our humanity. Guided by an amiable stage manager, the theatre becomes turn-of-the-century Grover’s Corners, where the occurrences of everyday life reveal universal truths about community and love, life, and death. “A hauntingly beautiful play” (The New York Times), Our Town is both deeply allegorical and endlessly captivating. Directed by STC’s Associate Artistic Director Alan Paul (Camelot), Our Town will celebrate the artists who call the DMV-area home.

All titles, artists, and dates subject to change.
