  Our Town at Olney Theatre Center

Our Town

Olney Theatre Center
2001 Olney-Sandy Spring Rd. Olney

Proclaimed "the greatest American play ever written," Thornton Wilder's Our Town looks at the power of life and death even in the brightest and most unassuming of settings. Winning the Pulitzer Prize in 1938, this hard-hitting drama has been performed on Broadway and beyond. Now, a small cast of just seven characters play what is traditionally a play with over 20 characters. Young lovers George and Emily grapple with lost potential, the sacrifices one makes and the beauty found in life -- if only you take the time to really look at it. Narrated by the nameless Stage Manager (played by Angels in America's Jon Hudson Odom), the actors perform this profound drama with Bunraku-style puppets to represent the rest of the townspeople, often breaking the fourth wall to address the audience directly. Don't miss this quietly heartbreaking show at the Olney Theatre Center.
