"Taking as his material three periods in the history of a placid New Hampshire twon, Mr. Wilder has transformed the simple events of human life into universal reverie. He has given familiar facts a deeply moving, philosophical perspective...Our Town is one of the finest achievements of the current stage." -- Brooks Atkinson --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
From the Back Cover
This beautiful new edition features an eyeopening Afterword written by Tappan Wilder that includes Thornton Wilder's unpublished notes and other illuminating photographs and documentary material.
Our Town was first produced and published in 1938 to wide acclaim. This Pulitzer Prize-winning drama of life in the small village of Grover's Corners, an allegorical representation of all life, has become a classic. It is Thornton Wilder's most renowned and most frequently performed play.

I'd forgotten how timeless it's lessons are. I'm sharing it with my grandson, who will be 16 years old next month and I'm loving every minute of it. We will be sharing the stage in a local production the last weekend in February. I truly feel as though I am experiencing "Our Town" from a new perspective. This arrangement has great scene design diagrams for each act, property and costume plots, as well as notes on pantomime, sound effects, etc. Each time I pick it up, I find something interesting and helpful in it's pages.
by Tappan Wilder, and a wonderful "Pre-Our Town" incorporating events in Thornton Wilders life that
influenced his play. The 3 act play itself never fails to stun the audience or reader with it's perfect
simplicity and immortal truths.
