Our Town

By Thornton Wilder

Directed By David Cromer

Tickets £9 - £36

production information

Award-winning US actor-director David Cromer directs this intimate version of Wilder’s iconic American play.

This deceptively simple story exposes the stark truth of human existence as two people fall in love, marry, and live out their lives as a small American town becomes an allegory for everyday life.

“David Cromer’s rethinking of Thornton Wilder’s masterpiece is a landmark”
Wall Street Journal

★★★★ the latest show he has programmed at the Almeida is all about the simplicity of putting your lips together and blowing.

The Financial Times

Reviews

★★★★ Cromer's version is for the most part brilliantly unshowy, peeling away the gloss of nostalgia to get at the profound and poignant truths beneath.
