Our Town photo 002 Wilder_Slides9

A multi-talented renaissance man, Thornton Wilder was acclaimed as a writer throughout his long life, capturing a Pulitzer Prize for Fiction and two more for Drama. “Our Town,” his most famous play, won the 1938 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, and for good reason: in using a starkly metatheatrical style, it broke ground while touching the hearts of all who saw it and posing ages-old metaphysical questions about life and death.
