A landmark in American theatre, Thornton Wilder’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play “Our Town” tells the story of a small fictional town, Grover’s Corners, New Hampshire, to tell the story of every town, the whole world over. Narrated by the Stage Manager, we follow the Gibbs and Webb families through 12 years of life changes – from mundane daily life, to romantic love and marriage, to devastating death and eternity. Through the young lovers Emily and George, their strong and loving parents, and the many other locals of Grover’s Corners, Wilder delivers universal truths about what it means to be human.
Hamilton Fine Arts Center is located at W220 N6151 Town Line Rd., Sussex.
