Massillon Museum presents Our Town, Thornton Wilder’s Pulitzer Prize-winning story of a small town—Grover’s Corners, New Hampshire—as told in three acts.
Our Town earned the 1938 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, startling audiences with its minimalist theatrical style—no curtain, no scenery, no props. It opens with the stage manager’s introduction to Grover’s Corners, a fictional town based on Peterborough, New Hampshire, where Wilder often spent his summers. The play represents the daily lives of people in America from 1901 to 1913. The first act describes their daily lives, the second act focuses on love and marriage, and the third act discusses death. Directed by David Harding and performed by local actors, this will be the Museum's first dramatic presentation in its new event space, Gessner Hall. Two performances will be held: Saturday, November 9th at 7:00pm, and Sunday, November 10th at 2:00pm. Tickets are $8/each general admission, $6/Massillon Museum members, and will be available for purchase starting October 15th. Museum galleries will be open during intermission, and refreshments will be available for purchase.
