Title:
Our Town: A Play in Three Acts
Annotation:
Wilder's masterpiece is the classic play on Americana set in a New England town during the early twentieth century. Through simple dialogue and nostalgic touches, the play magically conveys a profound love story between George Gibbs and Emily Webb set against a rich study of citizens of a small town.
