Dallas Theater Center closes its 2001-2002 Season with Thornton Wilder's American classic, Our Town, directed by Artistic Director Richard Hamburger. In this deceptively simple story of "growing up, living, and
dying" in Grovers Corners, New Hampshire, Wilder's luminous play embraces and examines both the cosmos and the commonplace.
Dallas Theater Center?s InPerspective series, a free humanities series that places each play in a broad cultural context, will feature Mr. Tappan Wilder, Thornton Wilder?s Literary Executor and Honorary Chairman of the Thornton Wilder Society. The next InPerspective, held in
conjunction with DTC?s production of Our Town is entitled ?Thornton Wilder and Our Town in a New Century? and will take place Sunday, April 21 immediately following the matinee, which will begin at 2 p.m.
