Our Town

  • by Thornton Wilder
  • directed by Damon Kiely
  • 1901, In Grover's Corners. Winner of the 1938 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, this haunting and unsentimental piece shares moments from the lives of two families in their small New England town. Often called the Great American play, Our Town challenges us to realize life as we live it.

    A family drama about seemingly little things that matter in profound ways — featuring appearances by special guest alumni and an ensemble of graduate and undergraduate actors in their final years of conservatory training.

    Each night of this production will feature a surprise appearance by special guest alumni including (in alphabetical order): Tom Amandes, Gillian Anderson, W. Earl Brown, Ann Dowd, Mary Grill, John Hoogenakker, Lisa Joyce, Adam Poss, PJ Powers, John C. Reilly, and Lucy Sandy.
