This timeless drama of life in the mythical village of Grover’s Corners, New Hampshire, explores the relationship between two young neighbors George Gibbs and Emily Webb, whose childhood friendship blossoms into romance and then culminates in marriage. When Emily looses her life in childbirth, the circle of life portrayed in each of the three acts of Our Town–growing up, adulthood, and death–is fully realized.
“Indeed the play’s success across cultural borders around the world attests to its being something much greater than an American play: it is a play that captures the universal experience of being alive.”
The glorious, epic saga of the Antrobus family as they survive one apocalyptic incident after another: the dawning of the Ice Age in early 20th Century New Jersey; cataclysmic storm systems and flood in Atlantic City; the decimation of humanity through a catastrophic war. Devastating and devastatingly funny, magical and meta, explosive and exquisitely intimate - join this extraordinary family on their rollercoaster ride through time, trial and tribulation!
