Our Town... but Wilder Summary

Our Town... but Wilder is a world premiere comedy about a 1980's high school production of Thornton Wilder's Our Town gone horribly wrong.

Our Town... but Wilder is set in a small New England town in the 1980's and tells the story of high school student Bentley Cramer, a sexually confused theater kid. When Bentley becomes the stage manager in his high school's production of Thornton Wilder's Our Town, a series of comic mishaps lead him on a journey of self-discovery as he learns about the fragile coexistence of beauty/community and intolerance/divisiveness that often co-exist in small town America.

Our Town... but Wilder was inspired by Thornton Wilder's most famous play, the Pulitzer Prize-winning Our Town, which has never stopped being produced since its premier in 1938. Small-town community plays a titular role in both plays. Wilder's play takes place in a New England town called Grover's Corner, while Krevolin ' sis set in Irrelevant, Connecticut. Both towns serve as a vehicle to capture the essence of life in America.

Our Town... but Wilder Special Information

THE HISTORY OF THE PLAY - Richard Krevolin became a theater lover and fan of Thornton Wilder's plays while growing up in a small Connecticut town in the 1970s/80s. He wrote Our Town... but Wilder while in grad school in 1990 and promptly put it on the shelf, where it sat for the next 30 years.Then, just a few years ago, he returned to his high school for a ceremony in which he was named a member of the academic hall of fame. Coincidentally, only days before the event there had been antisemitic and homophobic incidents at the school, which reminded him of the similar issues he had written about decades earlier. The fact that some things never seemed to change in small town America compelled him to unearth and share his now-33-year-old play with the world. As a result, Our Town... but Wilder will have its world premiere off-Broadway at the Actors Temple Theater in October, 2022.
