"While all of Wilder's work is intelligent, non-synthetic and often moving, as well as funny, it is Our Town that makes the difference. It is probably the finest play ever written by an American." —Edward Albee

Described by Edward Albee as "...the greatest American play ever written," the story follows the small town of Grover's Corners. Narrated by a stage manager, audiences follow the Webb and Gibbs families as their children fall in love, marry, and eventually—in one of the most famous scenes in American theatre—die.
