Our Town

a drama classic by Thornton Wilder

Calliope celebrates the 80th anniversary of Thornton Wilder's 1938 Pulitzer Prize-winning drama which was described by Edward Albee as "the greatest American play ever written." Our Town chronicles the lives of the residents of the small town of Grover’s Corners through three acts: "Daily Life," "Love and Marriage," and "Death and Eternity." Narrated by a stage manager and performed with minimal props and sets, audiences follow the Webb and Gibbs families as their children fall in love, marry, and eventually die.
