"We all know that something is eternal. And it ain't houses and it ain't names, and it ain't earth, and it ain't even the stars...everybody knows in their bones that something is eternal, and that something has to do with human beings." Our Town, Act III

Portland State University School of Theatre & Film proudly presents Thornton Wilder's deeply moving, Pulitzer Prize winning masterpiece depicting "...the life of a village against the life of the stars." Now celebrating its 75the year, this remarkable work remains deservedly, one of the best loved and most oft- produced of American plays.

"Our Town is not offered as a picture of life in a New Hampshire village; or as a speculation about the conditions of life after death... It is an attempt to find a value above all price for the smallest events in our daily life."

--Thornton Wilder, 1957
