Our Town
by Thornton Wilder
Directed by Arthur Steints

Anamated LitBar

Our Town is a three-act play by American playwright Thornton Wilder. It is a character story about an average town's citizens in the early twentieth century as depicted through their everyday lives. Using metatheatrical devices, Wilder sets the play in a 1930s theater. He uses the actions of the Stage Manager to create the town of Grover's Corners for the audience. Scenes from its history between the years of 1901 and 1913 play out.  

Our Town's narrator, the Stage Manager, is completely aware of his relationship with the audience, leaving him free to break the fourth wall and address them directly. The play is to be performed with little scenery, no set and minimal props. Tthe characters mime the objects with which they interact. Their surroundings are created only with chairs, tables, and ladders.
