Our Town

A landmark in American drama, Thornton Wilder’s 1938 Pulitzer Prize-winning Our Town tells the story of a small town that represents every town the world over. Narrated by the “Stage Manager,” the play follows the Gibbs and Webb families, residents of Grover’s Corners, N.H., through 12 years of life changes-from the mundane to the romantic to the devastating. Through young lovers Emily and George, their strong and loving parents and the locals’ interwoven lives, Wilder delivers universal truths about what it means to be human. The performance will be presented by Coastal Carolina University’s Department of Theatre November 7 – 15 in Edwards Theatre on Coastal Carolina University’s main campus. Admission: $17.
