For over 80 years, Our Town by Thornton Wilder has captured the hearts of audiences and remains one of the most performed and best-known plays in American theatre. In fact, it is said that every night, somewhere in the world, an audience is watching Our Town.
In celebration of the Town of Clayton’s 150th anniversary, Carolina Youth Theatre is staging the Pulitzer Prize-winning drama. First produced and published in 1938, Our Town explores the lives of people living in a small, quintessentially American town. The play is divided into three aspects of the human experience, Act 1 – The Daily Life, Act 2 – Love & Marriage, Act 3 – Death & Eternity. Carolina Youth Theatre’s production will contain design elements that nod to the Town of Clayton’s past.
“So,—people a thousand years from now … this is the way we were—in our growing up and in our marrying, and in our living, and in our dying.”
