Kehillah Jewish High School’s Performance of “Our Town”
by Thorton Wilder
Described by Edward Albee as “the greatest American play ever written” and winner of the 1938 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Our Town reminds us to celebrate love, family, community, and the beauty in the ordinary. Thornton Wilder’s magnificent Our Town is, at its heart, about us. All of us who are swept up by time and subject to inescapable change. As another ordinary day begins, the inhabitants of a small American town go about their business: newspapers are delivered; people go to work; gardens are tended, a couple falls in love. But as life’s events unfold, one question remains: “Do any human beings ever realize life while they live it?”
