Description

Often, children and teens don’t seem to appreciate the simple and good things in life. It’s too easy to get caught up in technology, consumerism, and worldly philosophies.

Our Town by Thornton Wilder is a classic 3-act play that highlights the importance of family, community, and the simple, ordinary events of life. With characters who reflect the hopes, dreams, failures and successes of people everywhere, this Pulitzer Prize winning play will enrich your child’s American drama studies.

Set in the fictional town of Grover’s Corners, New Hampshire, in the early 1900s, Our Town is an allegorical representation of life. First published and produced in 1938, this timeless story continues to be one of the most frequently performed plays with its universal themes of seizing the day, enjoying life while living it, and the importance of the little things in life.

Whether playing the part of Emily Webb—the intelligent, engaging daughter of Charles and Myrtle Webb; George Gibbs—the upright son of Frank and Julia Gibbs, or even the stage manager—who acts as a narrator for the play, your child will see that each character reflects the hopes and dreams, the failures and successes, of any person, anywhere.

This beautiful edition of Our Town features an eye-opening Afterward written by Tappan Wilder that includes Thornton Wilder’s unpublished notes, enlightening photographs, and documentary material.

This 200-page paperback edition also includes an illuminating and insightful Forward by Donald Margulies that provides a new appreciation for this well-known play.

Bible-Inspired Critical Thinking

In order to build independent thinkers, students are also challenged to apply critical thinking and analysis skills to material as they work through each course. This analysis is also applied to Biblical instruction as Scripture and Biblical principles are integrated throughout each course, allowing students to apply Biblical principles to everyday learning.

Complete and Convenient Education

Students will enjoy this motivating curriculum that provides a sense of accomplishment as each unit or work-text is completed. Parents and teachers love how easy it is to “take school with you” and stay on track while traveling or committed to other activities.
