Barrington’s White House offers outstanding performances and cultural events, hosting some of the most renowned artists and speakers in the world.
On Thursday, February 22nd, we welcome TesserAct Theatre Ensemble as they present Our Town. The performance will take place from 7:30-9:30pm. TesserAct will take you back to Grover’s Corners, New Hampshire in the early 1900s with the heartwarming story of George and Emily’s love and how precious everyday life is. This Thornton Wilder* classic is recreated as he intended—with very little scenery and few props. TesserAct presents the piece in a way that Thornton Wilder would have approved.
This event will feature a cash bar.
Here’s what the critics have to say about this timeless classic:
“A beautifully evocative play. A hauntingly beautiful play.” The New York Times
“One of the most important theatrical experiences of this generation…” Chicago Tribune
“It is the life of any Town, of any human, from the cradle to the grave. It’s really very fine.” Brooklyn Eagle
* Our Town is presented through a special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc., New York, NY. TesserAct Theatre Ensemble is a recognized 501(c)3 charitable organization.
