About This Show

Enjoy a classic piece of American theater amidst the timeless beauty of Green-Wood Cemetery. Our Town tells the story of Emily Webb and George Gibbs of Grover’s Corners, New Hampshire, a small New England town at the turn of the twentieth century. But the lessons of Grover’s Corners stretch far beyond the sleepy town, as the play explores the universal human experiences of life, love, marriage, death and dying. And while the play stays true to universal themes of Wilder’s world-renowned work, Green-Wood’s Our Town is distinctly Brooklyn – the cast is diverse, the music is modern, and the vibe is decidedly urban.

As the sun sets on Green-Wood’s stunningly unique landscape, you will be immersed in a fresh new take on this American classic, helmed by innovative director James Presson. Presson is a graduate of the theatre programs at Fordham University and Moscow Art Theatre and he serves as the co-Artistic Director of Less Than Rent Theatre, a position he has held since its founding in 2001. He is also the recipient of the 2013/2014 Dramatists Guild Fellowship for the book of his musical, Outlaws.
