In this Thornton Wilder classic, we begin our journey as the Stage Manager welcomes us to Grover's Corners, New Hampshire, 1901. Its morning; the paperboy delivers papers; and the milkman strolls by. The Gibbs family and the Webb family are sitting down to breakfast. We travel with these folks as their children fall in love, marry, and eventually - in one of the most famous scenes in American theatre - die. The play is enacted on a bare stage with minimal props, allowing us to fill in the rest with our imagination.
