The play Our Town by Thornton Wilder is a great play about old-time America and a perspective on how we should really look at life and enjoy the little things. At the end of the play Emily Webb is dead, but she gets to observe her life when she was little. She cannot control herself with emotions when she sees how simple the gifts for her 12th birthday were, but how much the simple and small things in life matter.
The play was a little slow moving at first and hard to really pay attention since it is mostly all pantomime. The smaller props were all acted out so you really needed to be focusing hard on the play, or else you couldn't follow from one thing to another. Thankfully though the actors did a great job in the pantomiming and the final piece was well done. It was and old fashion play that had a stage director for all the scenes, explaining what was going on for the audience. This is not done anymore during plays, at least the recent ones I've been to. It is a cool style to use, and one that really helps the audience jump into the play so they know what is going on and not out in the blue.
Overall I think that the play was a good play, one that was very well done by the school. I probably would go see it again if I had a chance, just so I could follow the play a little bit better then I did the first time. I don't go to see plays to often since movies are more of the craze these days but it was a nice experience.
