A drama by Thornton Wilder
Directed by John Davis
“It is a little play about all the biggest things in life.” – Thornton Wilder
The fictional town of Grover's Corners, New Hampshire, stands in for Everytown, U.S.A. in this quintessential American classic, which celebrated playwright Edward Albee once described as “the greatest American play ever written.”

Our Town depicts the everyday lives of two average American families in the early 20th century to illuminate the timeless and universal themes of young love and the eternal cycle of birth, life and death.
• Cool facts about this show: The year 2013 marks the 75th anniversary of Our Town. The play debuted at the McCarter Theatre in Princeton, New Jersey, on January 22, 1938. After a pre-Broadway try-out at Boston’s Wilbur Theatre, the play opened in New York City on February 4, 1938 at Henry Miller’s Theatre. Produced and directed by Jed Harris, the original Broadway production of Our Town moved to the Morosco Theatre 10 days later, where after 336 performances it closed on November 19, 1938. The play won Thornton Wilder the 1938 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. In the years thereafter, Our Town has enjoyed four Broadway revivals (1944, 1969, 1989 and 2003). A recent off-Broadway revival of the play at the Barrow Street Theatre in Greenwich Village ran for over a year and a half between February 2009 and September 2010 – longer than any of the five separate Broadway productions of the play (between 1938 and 2003).
Weathervane Playhouse last presented Our Town in 2002 as a Young Actor Series production directed by Sean McConaha, but the Playhouse has also staged this classic drama in 1948 (directed by Jesse Skrillitz) and in 1987 (directed by Bob Belfance).
