The citizens of Grover's Corners share the ultimate tale of community in this American classic, newly envisioned by Tony Award-winning Steppenwolf Ensemble Member Anna D. Shapiro and Steppenwolf Artistic Associate Jessica Thebus. The Lookingglass Ensemble will infuse the play with a singular chemistry you won't see anywhere else. In the hands of these renowned artists, Thornton Wilder's masterpiece will be disarmingly beautiful, utterly compelling and painfully funny.
Anna D. Shapiro on Our Town
â€śIn this moment, when the world is fractured by hate, fear and violence, it is critical that we tell stories that reveal our connectedness, not our isolation and, most importantly, our responsibility to one another as a family of man and not nation.â€ť
Jessica Thebus on Our Town
â€śOur Town is about the blessing of a communal space to gather and tell stories, to do the only thing we really can do for each other--which is to witness, to collectively witness life, death and struggle."
