When a lone traveler who is different from the others enters their camp, it forces all of them to question what they have and will do to survive and what truly makes a monster.

Our Town

Thornton Wilder’s Our Town shows the moments – small and large – that combine to make up the lives in an American town. From birth and school years, through courting and marriage, to death and, ultimately, the constants that remain when we are gone, the play reminds us to pay attention to the little things, because time moves quickly and tomorrow is not promised to us.
