8 Feb 2019 to 23 Feb 2019 Once Only Event
A Black Swan Production presented as part of Perth Festival.
Our Town by Thornton Wilder.
They can only be said to be alive in those moments when their hearts are conscious of their treasures. What if a teacher was actually played by a teacher? An undertaker by an undertaker? A policeman by a member of the Western Australia Police Force?
Our Town is Thornton Wilder’s Pulitzer prize-winning drama, a favourite of the modern American canon that brings to life the fictional town of Grover’s Corner. They get to know the town’s inhabitants, as if they were their very own neighbours. They follow their lives—some fleetingly and others more intimately—running the gamut of everyday human experience.
Within the minutiae of these characters’ lives—ordinary people going about their daily business—they will discover something extraordinary about who they are. Perth’s very own choirmasters and Uber Eats drivers join their cast of professional actors to populate and invigorate the story of Our Town. This will be a one-of-a-kind theatre event, staged in the Courtyard at the State Theatre Centre. A unique Perth Festival offering that speaks to us on the urgent necessity of living in the here and now.
