THE MARKET THEATRE CO.-Our Town
February 8-17, 2019
by Thornton Wilder
Directed by Robert Fuson
The Stage Manager guides audiences through a small New England town in the early 1900s, as its inhabitants grow up, get married and discover the beauty of life. Life was simpler then, to be sure. But Wilder’s Our Town is more, much more, than a nostalgic look at an earlier time, for Grover’s Corner is also our own town, our own life. With poetic beauty and simplicity, Our Town illuminates the powerful bonds that hold communities together through everyday life and moments of crisis. With humor, wit, and exceptionally powerful storytelling, Wilder delivers universal truths about what it means to be human and encourages us to live life to its fullest.
Robert Fuson is an award winning director recognized by the South Carolina Theatre Association and Southeastern Theatre Conference for his work as director of I Am My Own Wife by the Proud Mary Theatre Company. Robert makes his Anderson debut with Our Town.
