Reading Selections from: Our Town (1938)
by Thornton Niven Wilder
Special Note: The discussion of the play will be conducted as a sort of “reader’s theater” or “dramatic reading” where excerpts from the play will be read by groups of members who will individually assume the parts of the characters for that excerpt.
Go to the Our Town page for more information about this exceptional “readers’ theater” meeting that promises to be educational and entertaining!.
