Last chance to visit Our Town 03
Jun

By Open Air Theatre

Wedding

With just a week remaining, don’t miss your chance to see Our Town (ends 8 June), the opening production of our 2019 season.

Thought-provoking…in Ellen McDougall’s breezy, unforced revival…Laura Rogers’s Stage Manager sets the scene, harnessing our collective imagination. The air fills with hymns, the evening darkens, and I swear, to whatever lies above, that at an ethereal high-point the trees shivered in eerie synchronicity”. (Daily Telegraph)

“An elemental pleasure…Francesca Henry and Arthur Hughes are both excellent in the key roles of the teen lovers Emily and George.” (Daily Mail)

Ellen McDougall’s Wilder revival hits home with force. It reminds us of our failure to appreciate life and argues – in a point that is ever more poignant today – that “we don’t have time to look at one another”.  (The Guardian)

“There is a charm and dry wit in Thornton Wilder’s writing…it’s a remarkable play. The beyond-sublime third acts blows your mind”. (Time Out)

“There is a new star rising over Regent’s Park. Francesca Henry shines in Our Town…beguiling as a young bride; troubling in a later, darker incarnation; throughout gleamingly serious. Ellen McDougall’s production is wry, knowing, good-humoured”. (Observer)
