The People – and Puppets – of Grover’s Corners

Director Aaron Posner and Designer Aaron Cromie discuss their puppet-based OUR TOWN, with demonstrations

Saturday, October 7th, 2017 5:00 p.m. in the Mulitz-Gudelsky Theatre Lab


Thornton Wilder’s 1938 classic Our Town tells the story of three days in turn-of-the-century Grover’s Corners, New Hampshire, through acute observance of the lives of twenty-eight of its inhabitants.  Helen Hayes Award-winning Director Aaron Posner’s production, licensed by the Wilder Estate, tells the story with actors playing the seven principal roles, and Bunraku-style puppets playing the other twenty-one.  Join Director Aaron Posner and Puppet Designer Aaron Cromie to learn why this may be the most illuminating version of the classic play you’ll ever see.
