Our Town

By Thornton Wilder

'Do any human beings ever realize life while they live it? - every, every minute?'


Following her acclaimed production of 'The Crucible' in 2015, Amy Phillips returns to the LAC to direct Thornton Wilder's Pulitzer Prize-winning masterpiece, 'Our Town'.

'Beautiful and remarkable one of the sagest, warmest and most deeply human scripts to have come out of our theatre...A spiritual experience.'  (The New York Post)


The show ran from the 11th-14th July , 7.30pm, with a 2.30pm Saturday Matinee.


About the Play


Set in the fictional American small town of 'Grover's Corners' and following the Gibbs and Webb family, this iconic play is about appreciating the simplicity of every day life as well as the complexities of the human experience.  Discover for yourself why 'Our Town' (which was recently featured in the bestselling novel and film 'Wonder' by R.J.Palacio) is always being performed somewhere in America and why playwright Edward Albee ('Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf') called it: 'probably the finest play ever written by an American.'

'Beautiful and remarkable one of the sagest, warmest and most deeply human scripts to have come out of our theatre... A spiritual experience.'
The New York Post

'Thorton Wilder's masterpiece...An immortal tale of small town morality...'
The New York Times
