Our Town by Thortyn Wilder

Apparently Our Town by Thortyn Wilder  is the most produced play ever in the USA. Went to see a production at The Barrow Street Theatre last night.

I dont want to give too much away but it is an amazing use of a 'stark stage' the play is produced with seating on all three sides and played in the round and with the lighting high enough that when an actor is looking at you, they are looking directly at you

My favorite line in the whole play was about how people live their whole lives in little boxes, if you see it you'll get the irony.
