75th Anniversary Production
by Thornton Wilder
directed by Stephen Rayne
January 25-February 24, 2013
Set in the serene New England town of Grover’s Corners, Thornton Wilder’s Pulitzer Prize-winning drama presents a timeless commentary on the transience of human existence. Teenagers George and Emily meet, fall in love, marry—and suffer the slings and arrows of everyday life. Wilder transforms their ordinary story into a poignant and captivating exploration of mortality and the interconnectivity of human beings. Stephen Rayne (The Heavens Are Hung In Black, Sabrina Fair and Parade) returns to direct this quintessential piece of American theater in celebration of the play’s 75th-anniversary year.
