Everyman Theatre continue their 2013/14 season with a production of Thornton Wilder's 'Our Town'.
'Seems to me that once in your life before you die you ought to see a country where they don't talk in English and don't even want to.' - Mrs Gibbs.
Our guide is the 'Stage Manager' who leads us to consider the universal by showing us the specifics that make up ordinary, everyday lives. He leaves us feeling just a little bit out of our comfort zone. Heralded as 'The last word in experimental theatre' by the New York Times when it opened on Broadway in 1938, this play can be seen as a forerunner of works by Dylan Thomas, Pirandello, Brecht and many others.
Perhaps in our madcap materialistic world it is no bad thing to be told by those living a century before us to value the here and now. As Henry Thoreau said: 'Launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment.'
Our Town takes to the main-stage at Chapter Arts Centre from Tuesday 11 to Saturday 15 March with performances at 7.30pm each evening and an additional matinee performance at 2.30pm on Saturday.
Please note that the Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday performances are now SOLD OUT! There is good availability for the remainder of the run- Friday/Saturday. We would strongly recommend you book as soon as possible to avoid disappointment
Tickets are £10 (£8 concessions Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday matinee only) Book your tickets here or by calling (029) 2030 4400

Martin Dysart is a psychiatrist who attempts to discover why young Alan Strang has mutilated six live horses.

But as he gets closer to the reason behind Strang's horrendous acts, Dysart discovers previously locked-away secrets within.
