Thornton Wilder’s Our Town offers an honest portrayal of wholesome American life through the use of pantomime and minimal set, allowing the focus to be on the show’s message. It is simplicity at its finest.
The setting of Grover’s Corners belongs not only to the townsfolk, but also to the audience as the character of the Stage Manager frequently breaks the fourth wall.
The audience is drawn into the daily life of Grover’s Corners and gets to know the townsfolk, especially the Gibbs and Webb families. The title rings true because Grover’s Corners is everybody’s town. Everyone has experienced loss like George and Emily.
