Our Town

Act 3: Funeral

Role: ARTISTIC DIRECTOR

Long considered a classic of the modern American theatre, Our Town earned Thornton Wilder his second Pulitzer Prize, making him the only American author to receive this honour for both fiction and drama. First performed in Princeton, New Jersey in January 1938, its timeless appeal has seen it revived on Broadway and performed by regional and community theatres across the USA and around the world. This production celebrates the play’s 70th anniversary.
