Love and marriage, birth and death. Seen from a distance they're just the rhythm of everyday life: but when you're caught up in the middle and they're happening to you, they're the whole world. A bona fi de American classic, OUR TOWN tells the story of Emily and George, two unremarkable teenagers growing up in a small New Hampshire town at the turn of the last century. You're invited to eavesdrop on this tightly wound community as events unfold - both the apparently trivial and the deeply profound - across the course of a decade. Rich with detail and shot through with a distinctive mix of light and shade, Thornton Wilder's Pulitzer Prize-winning smalltown epic of human existence remains as theatrically fresh and as topical as ever: OUR TOWN, but also, unmistakably, yours.Performers Youssef Kerkour (Stage Manager), Norah Lopez Holden (Emily Webb), Patrick Elue (George Gibbs), Carla Henry (Mrs Julia Gibb), Nicolas Khan (Dr Gibbs), Graeme Hawley (Mr Webb), Lyllie Longmore (Professor Willard), Patricia Allison, Kelly Hotten, Chris Jack, Luke Matthews, Tarek Merchant, Nadia Nadarajah, Michael Peace, Eamonn Riley.
