Our Town by Thornton Wilder.

We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures. What if a teacher was actually played by a teacher? An undertaker by an undertaker? A policeman by a member of the WA Police Force?

Our Town is Thornton Wilder’s Pulitzer prize-winning drama, a favourite of the modern American canon that brings to life the fictional town of Grover’s Corner. We get to know the town’s inhabitants, as if they were our very own neighbours. We follow their lives—some fleetingly and others more intimately—running the gamut of everyday human experience.

Within the minutiae of these characters’ lives—ordinary people going about their daily business—we will discover something extraordinary about who we are. Perth’s very own choirmasters and Uber Eats drivers join our cast of professional actors to populate and invigorate the story of Our Town. This will be a one-of-a-kind theatre event, staged in the Courtyard at the State Theatre Centre. A unique Perth Festival offering that speaks to us on the urgent necessity of living in the here and now.
