Our Town explores the relationship between two young Grover’s Corners neighbors, George Gibbs (Gavin Harriman) and Emily Webb (Lindsey Neville), whose childhood friendship blossoms into romance, and then culminates in marriage. When Emily loses 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. The story also features the relationships of their parents Dr. Gibbs (Ryan Maharrey), Mrs. Gibbs (Madison Ogburn), Mr. Webb (Cisco Ferre) and Mrs. Webb (Mariel Zmarzly) and the changes they all face as their children grow up.
The timeless drama of life in the mythical village of Grover’s Corners, New Hampshire, has become an American classic with universal appeal. Thornton Wilder’s most frequently performed play, Our Town appeared on Broadway in 1938 to wide acclaim, and won the Pulitzer Prize. It has been produced in amateur and professional theatres around the world.
“This play is truly timeless in its theme and story; we all have experienced what these characters face,” explains the production’s director Harry Culpepper, Jr. “I am excited about the new approach we are taking with this production by modernizing the visual aspects as well as incorporating modern music to make this classic story relevant to our audiences today.”
