Read full description of the books Our Town:This is a definitive edition of Thornton Wilder's best-known and most frequently performed play. First produced and published in 1938, at which time it won the Pulitzer Prize, its reputation asa n American classic has increased over the years.
Brooks Atkinson, in his review of Our Town's first performance, had this to say: "Taking as his material three periods in the history of a placid New hampshire town, Mr. Wilder has transmuted the simple events of human life into universal reverie. He has given familiar facts a deeply moving, philosophical perspective. ...Our Town is, in this columnist's opinion, one of the finest achievements of the current stage."
Its universal appeal is set forth by the Stage Manager in the play: "This is the way were in our growing up and in our marrying and in our doctoring and in our living and in our dying."
