Do any human beings ever realise life while they live it?”

Thornton Wilder’s Pulitzer Prize-winning “Our Town” is an iconic and timeless classic that still resonates with audiences across the globe.

The story is deceptively simple: In a small American town, two people fall in love, marry and live out their lives among the many villagers there. Its powerful message to audiences is that too often we squander time looking back to a past we cannot change without truly embracing the present. The play celebrates the beauty of life, not just for the big events but for the smallest details and interactions that we never fully treasure while we live them.

With a narrator, no props and a minimal set, Wilder looks through a telescope at the characters living in the town, allowing the audience to appreciate the acting and the ironic truth of our human existence.


the greatest American play ever written.” — Edward Albee
