As compelling today as it was when first performed in 1938, this American classic celebrates the beauty of life as it is played out against a simplistic backdrop of daily rituals. Throughout the morning and the rest of the day, the townspeople of Grover's Corners eat breakfast, work in town, do household chores, garden, gossip, go to school, attend choir practice, and admire the moonlight. As they unfold, these timeless activities provide us with a deeply moving, universal glimpse into the concerns of all humankind.
"...a beautifully evocative play"
