Our Town

Thursday, 16 November, 2023

Other Dates For This Event:

SLU Theatre & Dance presents Our Town by Thornton Wilder.  Described by Edward Albee as "the greatest American play ever written," Our Town presents the small town of Grover’s Corners in three acts: "Daily Life," "Love and Marriage" and "Death and Eternity." Narrated by a stage manager and performed with minimal props and sets, the play depicts the simple daily lives of the Webb and Gibbs families as their children fall in love, marry, and eventually, in one of the most famous scenes in American theatre, die.

Directed by guest artist Gaby Rodriguez.  Sponsored by SLU Alum Marianne Muellerleile.
