“Our Town” at the Ghent Playhouse

A story of daily life, love & marriage and death & eternity in a small American town nestled in at 42?40? north latitude and 70′ 37′ west longitude. This production is directed by John Trainor and runs May 18, 2018 through June 3, 2018, at the Ghent Playhouse.

Set in the fictional town of Grover’s Corners, Thornton Wilder’s masterpiece is narrated by a Stage Manager and performed with minimal props and sets as the audience follows the Webb and Gibbs families, as their children fall in love, marry, and eventually – in one of the most famous scenes in American theater history – die.   The Ghent Playhouse is thrilled to present the playwright?s definitive version of Our Town, described by Edward Albee as “the greatest American play ever written.”  Winner of the
1938 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
