Our Town

FAIRLESS HILLS >> Pennsbury Drama is thrilled to finish the Main Stage season with "Our Town" — the timeless classic.

The Pulitzer Prize-winning play focuses on the small, fictional town of Grover’s Corners, where ordinary people lead extraordinary lives. This simple yet profound story of community, brought to life by Thornton Wilder’s singular voice, remains one of the most loved plays of all time.

Described by Edward Albee as “…the greatest American play ever written,” the story follows the small town of Grover’s Corners through three acts: “Daily Life,” “Love and Marriage,” and “Death and Eternity.” Narrated by a stage manager and performed with minimal props and sets, audiences follow the Webb and Gibbs families as their children fall in love, marry, and eventually – in one of the most famous scenes in American theatre – die. Thornton Wilder’s final word on how he wanted his play performed is an invaluable addition to the American stage and to the libraries of theatre lovers internationally.

Pennsbury High School presents "Our Town" on Friday, April 12 and Saturday, April 13 at 7:30 p.m. each night at the Pennsbury High School West Campus, Orange Auditorium, 608 South Olds Boulevard, Fairless Hills. Ticket may be purchased at the door one hour before each evening performance. Tickets are $10 and seating is general admission.
