Our Town

Cast Announced

Our Town
By Thornton Wilder
Directed by Colleen Batson

Performance Dates:
22 – 26 October 2019, 8:00pm

Grover’s Corners is a picture of an American town in a time before cars became common. Neighbours are nosy, milk is delivered off a cart by a milkman and the choirmaster drinks too much.
The plays centres on two families the Webbs and the Gibbs, neighbours whose son and daughter fall in love and get married. George is the typical boy next door, caught up in baseball, and Emily is the level-headed girl who makes sure he remembers where he came from. In the second act, George and Emily are about to get married. We are taken back to the day when Emily and George first speak about their friendship over strawberry ice cream shakes.

In the Third Act we learn that Emily has died in childbirth, but she realises that she can return to her former life, she is warned it is not a good idea and through her journey back she shows us that the living may not realise just how good life actually is…
