Our Town

By Thornton Wilder

Directed by Melissa Schnepper & David Sobeski

Our Town is a play that explores the lives of people living in a small, quintessentially American town and touches upon three aspects of the human experience – daily life, love and marriage, and death and loss.

“Change comes slowly to a small New Hampshire town in the early 20th century. People grow up, get married, live, and die. Milk and the newspaper get delivered every morning, and nobody locks their front doors”- John Oswalt.
