- The theme of the play has to do with the way that life is an endless cycle. You’re born, you have some happy times, you have some bad times, and then you die. As the years pass by, everything seems to change. But all in all there is little change. The sun always rises in the early morning, and sets in the evening.
- “Our Town”, by Thornton Wilder, written in 1938, was first performed at the McCarter theatre, New Jersey, on the 22nd of January1938. It is an example of meta theatre, and chronicles the lives of ordinary, everyday people, during their ordinary, everyday lives.
- Thornton Wilder was one of the America s greatest writers of all time. Thought of as a star of the first magnitude unusually versatile, original, and clever. (Phelps 2881). He brought small town life in America to theatres with his play Our Town. Wilder expressed many values in his work such as Christian morality, community, the family, and appreciation of everyday pleasures.
- When I compared Our Town by Thorton Wilder and The Glass Menagerie by Tennessee Williams I noticed a lot of differences and very few similarities. I noticed differences in the roles that the mothers played in each of the stories, and the impact that the father had on the family.
- Thornton Wilder?s Our Town spans twelve years in the life of Grover?s Corners, New Hampshire. Throughout this time period the play portrays both routine daily life and major events in the lives of George Gibbs, Emily Webb, and their families. Present throughout is the Stage Manager who gives informal commentary and explanation of the play?s characters and events.
- Compare and Contrast While the Glass Menagery and Our Town are different in many ways; theyare also the same in some ways. The plot is the same in the two plays in that there is always one person trying toget out of town. Also in both plays someone is unhappy with what they are doing.
- 1. Thorton Wilder was one of the most cosmopolitan and sophisticated of American writers. Born in the Midwest on April 17, 1897, he was educated in China, in Germany language schools, in America, and in Rome. He was thoroughly familiar with classical literature.
- In his play, Our Town, the three time Pulitzer Prize winning dramatist, Thornton Wilder, uses techniques somewhat unconventional and anti-realistic compared to the works of other dramatists. Being more like a statement, the play’s theme is about enjoying the simple pleasures of life and daily routines.
- A constantly shifting verb tense throughout the play reveals that something strange is happening here with time. Pantomime and conversation simultaneously enact life’s continuum of time and place. The principal actor is the Stage Manager, who remains on stage the entire time explaining much of the action.
- The daily life is mostly the same for all people across the world. In the play Ms. Gibbs wakes up the kids. She makes them breakfast and packs their lunch. The Greeks did the same for their kids. Also in the play, the letter that Jane Crowfort got was addressed to the world, the universe, and everything in gods mind.
- Our town, a play that takes place in a small town called Grover’s Corners, New Hampshire. It starts in 1901 and spands over the years til 1913. The book takes you through different cycles of life, with the continuing theme that you should not take life for granted and live life to the fullest.
- In fact my town does not resemble the setting displayed in this play although I am sure the setting of our ancestors towns were much like this one. Back then everybody knew each other and they did not have to lock their doors and they had a strong fear of death and judgement which was indirectly implanted in their religion.
- In the play Our Town there are many complex ideas concerning life. The three acts of the play each concentrate on an important stage of life- birth and growing up, love and marriage, and death. As the play moves on, the emotions become more complicated and involved, and they show meanings which are hidden.
- What is the definition of a small town? Is it where everyone knows your name, like the theme song of Cheers, or is it where everyone cares about each other and knows what’s going on in town. Grover’s Corner fits the definition of the classic small town back in the early twentieth century.
- In Thorton Wilder s classic play about life in a small town, no other two characters share so much in common with one another as Mrs. Gibbs and Mrs. Webb do. Their purpose in the story, on a figurative level, is to represent the monolithic thinking of a small town.
- Our Town, by Thornton Wilder is a play that takes place in a small fictional town of Grover’s Corner, New Hampshire; beginning in 1901 and ending in 1913. The play takes the audience through the cycles of life, with the purpose of getting a universal message stating that life shouldn’t be taken for granted.
- Wideman?s quotation from Brothers and Keepers could be interpreted to say a number of different things. The interpretation I could make is no person could explain the reason things are the way they are in life. In trying to come up with a logical answer they dwell on it and it becomes even more confusing.
- In a New York Times review of Thorton Wilder s play, Our Town, reviewer Brooks Atkinson proclaimed that Mr. Wilder has transmuted the simple events of human life into universal reveries (Atkinson 119). Our Town can certainly be considered an example of the universality of time, social history, and religious ideals.
- Dr. Gibbs and Mrs. Gibbs have a relationship in which love is shown between the two. The difference is is that Mrs. Gibbs is more verbal with her feelings of worry and want than Dr.
- The play Our Town was written by Thornton Wilder in 1938. This play was a huge part of Wilder?s success. I believe his purpose for this play is to show us the simple things in life we often overlook. The play is to show you how important it is to have love in your life, plus the meaning and beauty of it all.
