About the Event
Parental guidance recommended - Contains mature themes.
Join the Holyoke High School Theater Company on November 14, 15, and 16 at 6:30 p.m. for three powerful performances of the multilingual version of Thornton Wilder’s Our Town. A drama featuring translated passages by Nilo Cruz and Jeff Augustin, this production will feature English and Spanish dialogue performed by bilingual actors, with projected subtitles in English and Spanish.
Thornton Wilder’s Our Town follows the Webb and Gibbs families as their children fall in love, marry, and eventually - in one of the most famous scenes in American theater - die. Narrated by a stage manager and performed with minimal props and sets, Our Town depicts the small town of Grover's Corners, New Hampshire, through three acts: "Daily Life," "Love and Marriage," and "Death and Eternity." In the next step for a play that Wilder conceived from the beginning as a play about everywhere, Our Town will be performed in two languages - English and Spanish. Infused with layers of culture and community, this new acting edition celebrates Grover's Corners as an international address.
