Thornton Wilder’s Our Town is an American classic. It takes place in Grovers Corners, New Hampshire, a typical small town. Narrated by the Stage Manager, we see the daily life routines of two typical American families. During the progression of the play there is a gradual representation of life’s deeper aspects, mostly through George Gibbs and Emily Webb, whose unspoken mutual affection as children blossoms into love, marriage, and death.

Act 2 celebrates George and Emily’s wedding. The characters analyze the need for human companionship while questioning the institution of marriage. The last-minute apprehension that both Emily and George experience about being married represents a universal theme of young people wanting to grow up quickly while still craving childhood’s relative certainty and security.
