Our Town

  • Dates: 4/26/2024, 5/12/2024
  • Location: Granite Theatre
  • 1 Granite Street
  • Westerly, RI 02891
  • Time: 7:30 AM
  • As the Granite Theatre sets out to find the storytellers of the town, it would be remiss not to tell stories of the town itself. Join in, with help of the shows "Stage Manager", as they showcase all the wonderful things about Westerly on stage, and throw in some fun Easter eggs for you to find as well. Described by Edward Albee as “the greatest American play ever written,” Our Town presents the small New England town of Grover’s Corners in three acts: “Daily Life,” “Love and Marriage” and “Death and Eternity.” Narrated by a stage manager and performed with minimal props and sets, the play depicts the simple daily lives of 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.
