Our Town Information

Thornton Wilder’s inventive play Our Town opens the new 2019 season at Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre, directed by Gate Theatre artistic director Ellen McDougall.

This meta-theatrical play is set in a fictional American town in the early 20th century, and follows the ordinary lives of the citizens of Grover’s Corners. Set in a theatre, the main character is the Stage Manager of the production who addresses the audience directly before pulling the show together with members of the town coming in to perform.

Our Town was first performed at the McCarter Theater in New York in 1938 before it went on to play Broadway and subsequently won the Pulitzer Prize for drama. The play has seen numerous revivals across the US, and was notably recently seen in London at the Almeida Theatre in 2014, when David Cromer revived his 2009 New York production.

It will be directed by Ellen McDougall, who has been the helm of the Gate Theatre since 2017. Her theatre credits include Othello at the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse, The Unknown Island at the Gate, and Tennessee Williams’ The Glass Menagerie for Headlong.

Our Town is the first production in the new Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre season, which includes stagings of Hansel and Gretel, A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Evita.

Tickets are non-refundable in the event of cancellation because of the weather but may be exchanged in accordance with the Weather Policy.

Our review

Our Town

Earlier this week, I was lucky enough to be wandering around the ancient ruins of Pompeii. Perusing the enormous site, it's easy to be awestruck by the incredible statues, structures and amphitheatres built over two millennia ago. What you don't get a sense of is the people who called Pompeii home; those who lived (and probably died) in the tiny abandoned plots along the streets are hardly given a second thought.What Thornton Wilder's Our Town does is fill those homes with life. It tells the...
