'Our Town' is a three-act play by American playwright Thornton Wilder. It is a character story about an average town's citizens in the early twentieth century as depicted through their everyday lives. Wilder uses metatheatrical devices, such as the actions of the Stage Manager, to create the town of Grover's Corners for the audience. Scenes from its history between the years of 1901 and 1913 play out.
