La Jolla Playhouse presents
By Thornton Wilder
Directed by Tom Dugdale
Produced in Association with The Trip
95 person capacity
Run Time: 2 hours
In this new version of Our Town, a group of twenty-somethings invites the audience over for a party under the stars. Casually dressed, noodling now and then on the guitar, they conjure up a little place they know and love – Grover’s Corners, New Hampshire – passing around a camera in the hope that this night might be forever preserved. They’re so young and beautiful you can't take your eyes off of them. Thornton Wilder's classic is faithfully re-imagined as an intimate backyard gathering with live, original music and all the free soda-pop you can drink.
Recommended for ages 12+. This show contains some adult language. This is an outdoor evening performance. Seating provided, some walking required. Part of the performance takes place on rough ground. Closed-toe shoes recommended.
Walking Travel Time from Festival Village: Less than 1 minute
