WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Our Town shatters theater conventions, sharing its timeless story — of living, loving, and dying — with directness and intimacy that other plays rarely achieve. Presented in an empty theater, the audience is constantly reminded that they are witnessing a play by their guide for the evening, the Stage Manager, played in this production by Salem's Brian Casey. But magically, the stories of Our Town, the denizens of Grover's Corners, New Hampshire, become as tangible and real as life itself. Theatrical legend Edward Albee once described Our Town as "the finest play ever written by an American." Marblehead's John Fogle directs this production.
