“No curtain. No scenery.” A minimalist theatrical style sets apart the 1938 recipient of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama: Thornton Wilder’s Our Town. Wilder’s greatest and best-known work as a playwright, Our Town opens with the Stage Manager’s introduction to Grover’s Corners, a fictional town based on Peterborough, New Hampshire. The sparse and symbolic qualities of the set suggest Wilder’s intention to make Grover’s Corners represent all towns. Wilder explores the families’ inter-relationships, specifically between George Gibbs and Emily Webb. In this production, parallels will be made between Grover’s Corners and Summit in the early 1900s with the assistance of photographs provided by the Summit Historical Society.
