Enjoy a classic piece of American theater amidst the timeless beauty of Green-Wood Cemetery. Our Town tells the story of Emily Webb and George Gibbs of Grover’s Corners, New Hampshire, a small New England town at the turn of the twentieth century. But the lessons of Grover’s Corners stretch far beyond the sleepy town, as the play touches on the beauty of life, the randomness of the universe, and celebrates spirituality and the importance of memorials and memory. Deeply rooted in American and social history, Our Town fits in perfectly with Green-Wood’s own history and the hundreds of thousands of personal stories memorialized across its beautiful landscape.
As the sun sets on Green-Wood’s stunning 478 acres, you will be immersed in a fresh new take on this American classic, helmed by innovative director James Presson. Presson is a graduate of the theatre programs at Fordham University and Moscow Art Theatre. He serves as the co-Artistic Director of Less Than Rent Theatre, a position he has held since it was founded in 2010, and is the recipient of the 2013/2014 Dramatists Guild Fellowship for the book of his musical, Outlaws.
