"Wilder's unfashionable insistence on embracing wonders as well as woe is both gallant and exhilarating. . . .[Our Town] leaves us with a sense of blessing, and the unspoken but palpable command to achieve gratitude in what remains of our days on earth." — The New Yorker

This beautiful edition of Our Town features an eyeopening Afterword written by Tappan Wilder, Thornton Wilder's nephew, that includes Wilder's unpublished notes and other illuminating photographs and documentary material.

Our Town was first produced and published in 1938 to wide acclaim. This Pulitzer Prize-winning drama of life in the small village of Grover's Corners, an allegorical representation of all life, has become an American classic. It is Thornton Wilder's most renowned and most frequently performed play.
