Abbey Theater of Dublin, in collaboration with Stage Right Theatrics, will present the classic Pulitzer Prize-winning play "Our Town," written by Thorton Wilder. The production will be performed in-person March 15, 16 and 21-23 at 7 p.m.; March 17 and 24 at 2 p.m. Tickets for the production are $20 and are available at DublinOhioUSA.gov/abbey-theater.

"Our Town" shares the story of a love affair between two young neighbors in three parts: "Daily Life," "Love and Marriage" and "Death and Eternity." The play depicts the daily lives of the two families in a small town as the children fall in love, marry, and eventually die. Thornton Wilder's timeless drama compels the audience to consider the importance of life's little moments.

"Our Town" is the quintessential Natural Theatre play," says Stage Right Theatrics Producer Robert Cooperman. "Aside from being American to its core, it portrays the philosophical underpinning of our nation's founding, emphasizing human nature, community, virtue, and the natural cycles of life."
