In Grover’s Corner, a little Northamerican town at the beginning of the XX Century, the life of its habitants –like the families Gibbs and Webb – goes by the time in a simple, daily existence that hides the secret of life and death in its simplicity. Also the secret of happiness.
The touching humanism of Our Town is comprehensible for any culture, any time and any spectator wherever it is. And this walk through the daily life of a small community of the last century –a theatrical walk that takes seventeen years and talks about 22 characters- reveals with simplicity, sincerity, the truth of poetry… everything that we miss and we wish to find: the place where our happiness is hidden.
Thornton Wilder (1897 – 1975)
