Our Town

A major revival of Thornton Wilder's 1938 play Our Town in London for a strictly limited three-week season

Birth; marriage; death. And everything in between. Thornton Wilder's Pulitzer Prize-winning play follows a generation of villagers in the fictional American small town of Grover's Corners in New England as it recounts the story of an average town's citizens through their everyday lives and in doing so, celebrates what it means to be human, the bonds that hold communities together, and our relationships with the ancient past and the eternal tomorrow.

Directed by Ellen McDougall. Further details to be announced.

Thornton Wilder's 1954 play The Matchmaker provided the basis for Jerry Herman's musical comedy Hello, Dolly!.

PLEASE NOTE: Although the vast majority of performances are completed each year, as the auditorium and stage are completely uncovered, we may have to stop and re-start the show. On rare occasions, it will not be possible for us to complete the performance. Tickets are non-refundable in the event of cancellation because of the weather but may be exchanged. Performances are never cancelled before the advertised start time. You may bring an umbrella, but please refrain from using an umbrella during the performance. For your safety and the comfort of all patrons, only one bag per ticket holder, no larger than 36cm x 30cm x 50cm, will be allowed into the theatre grounds or auditorium. Please note that cloakroom facilities are not available.
