This production celebrates the 75th anniversary of this beloved, Pulitzer Prize-winning, American classic. The play has become an idyllic symbol of our collective national past—a time and place where decency, friendship and wholesome values were the nor—an America untainted by the greed, corruption, pollution and violence that now darken our horizon. The ordinary citizens of the ordinary town of Grover’s Corners weave an extraordinary and timeless tale about life, love and mortality.
