“ ‘The finest play ever written by an American’ – Edward Albee

“Following a generation of villagers in a small New England town – through their daily lives, loves, marriages, and deaths – it is as famous for its portrayal of turn-of-the-century America as it is for its unique theatricality and timeless themes.

“ ‘A masterpiece... a classic of soft spoken theater’ – New York Times

“After winning the Pulitzer Prize in 1938, this seminal American play by Thornton Wilder has been performed somewhere in the United States every night since.

“Directed by Off-West End Award nominee Tim Sullivan and featuring a cast assembled from eight different countries around the world, the streets of tiny Grover’s Corners stretch globally to underscore the true universality of Our Town.” – from the King’s Head website

This production of Our Town marks the play’s 75th anniversary with its first major London revival in a generation.

Initially I ran an option for members to pre-pay for tickets as a group, and purchased these tickets as a batch. That option is now closed, so please purchase your own ticket direct from the King’s Head website.

We will have dinner after the play at Pasha (chosen by majority preference). This will be at 9.30 pm. Please let me know if you would like to stay on for dinner.

    Hi Jane

    I don't think I can make dinner but would be able to go for a drink after the performance if the restaurant permits. Not a problem if not possible. See you tomorrow.

      Hi Virginia - I've phoned Pasha and they've said it's probably all right - it depends on how busy they are. Shall we play it by ear? - hopefully it will be fine. It would be lovely if you can join us.
