Our Town

by Thorton Wilder

November 15, 16, 17, 2018 @ 7p.m. in DMT

Directed by Mr. Wanninger

Described by Edward Albee as "...the greatest American play ever written," the story follows the small town of Grover's Corners through three acts: "Daily Life," "Love and Marriage," and "Death and Eternity." Audiences follow the Webb and Gibbs families as their children fall in love, marry, and eventually – in one of the most famous scenes in American theatre – die.
