Performing: November 7 – 9, 2019

Birth, marriage, death. And everything in between.

As day breaks on another ordinary day, the townsfolk of Grover’s Corners go about their business: newspapers are delivered, people go to work, gardens are tended. And a boy and girl fall in love. But as life’s events unfold and a community comes together, one question remains: “Do any human beings ever realize life as they live it? Every, every minute?”

Thornton Wilder’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play celebrates what it means to be human and the bonds that unite us all.
