In the context of global rush, alienation, selfishness, and constant attempt to live according to a plan, the play “Our Town” turns to ordinary people living in the presence of eternity, their destinies, and the search for their meaning. The play discusses the essential questions: Why do we live? What is love? What is death? What is time and why don’t we value it? What will happen when our time will come to an end?

The play depicts a love story between the children of neighbouring families living in a small early 20th-century town in the USA. Three acts portray essential moments in human life – birth and childhood, maturity and wedding, funeral and afterlife. At first sight, the language of the play is very simple but it symbolizes the universal and unconditional control that time has over people. Today this topic has another nuance – as people don’t have time for each other, they lose touch with neighbours, relatives, and family members. In the simplicity of everyday life, the characters of the play find answers to the existential questions and highlight the benefits of living in a community – close relationships, respect, and kindness.

Duration: 3 hours 30 min

Opening: 4th January 2018
