The New York Times says, “Thornton Wilder’s masterpiece…An immortal tale of small town morality [and]…a classic of soft spoken theater.”

Stanford Drama professor Jean-Marie Apostolidès collaborates with the world-renowned French director Georges Lavaudant to present the Pulitzer Prize-winning American favorite that Edward Albee describes as “…the greatest American play ever written.” Written and set in the late 1930s when milkmen still came door-to-door each morning, Our Town nonetheless confronts the more timeless human traditions— love, marriage, birth, and death—and asks the questions at the core of human experience: how might we live life with both significance and routine? What makes life significant?
