Our Town

September 12 — October 11, 2015

On the U.S. Bank Main Stage

Previews are Sep. 12-17 | Opening night Sep. 18
By Thornton Wilder
Directed by Rose Riordan

An irrefutable classic of the American theater, this Pulitzer Prize-winning work transports us to Grover’s Corners, a small New England town at the turn of the twentieth century whose secret desires, family conflicts, loves and losses are resoundingly familiar to us today. This beloved drama receives a fresh interpretation at PCS, inviting us to ponder what is today, and celebrating both the marvel of everyday existence and the “something way down deep that’s eternal about every human being.”
