Our Town

2013-2014 National Theatre of Northern Greece
Our Town - Thornton Wilder
Opening: Theatre of the Society for Macedonian Studies, 28/2/2014

Through the relationship of two children, Emily and George, Wilder captures everyday life in a small American community. Mornings and nights, romances and marriages, neighbourhoods and groups of friends and walks in the moonlight are some of the small or large moments of the heroes of this town, which could be any town anywhere in the world. Wilder’s award-winning play is not only "an attempt to find a value above all price for the smallest events in our daily life”, as the author himself stated, but touches the heart of life with sensitivity and tenderness. Daily, insignificant moments that Time in its passage erases from memory are masterfully illuminated to show the magic that hides behind everything that determines to a greater or lesser degree the course and the future of human existence.
