Thornton Wilder’s Pulitzer prize winning play Our Town first opened on Broadway in 1938, and has since become an absolutely beloved part of the American theater repertoire. Its tender, delicate portrait of small-town, ordinary lives has come to have an extraordinary resonance, partly thanks to the bold but simple, stripped back simplicity of its storytelling.
