Our Town, kicks off the Theater season at PLU later this month. The play, directed by new PLU faculty member, Lori Lee Wallace, was first produced in 1938 and since has become an American classic. The play reveals the ordinary lives of the people in the small town of Grover’s Corners, New Hampshire. Our Town defies most conventional theatrical genres: it is neither a comedy nor a tragedy, neither a romance nor a farce. It is, rather, a contemplative work and richly timeless commentary on nothing less than the tragicomedy of human existence. It’s also deceptively subtle and doesn’t rely on obvious conflict to draw us in or push its plot along.
