Raleigh Little Theatre’s Our Town
by Zack Smith
The shadows seem to be creeping into Grover’s Corners in Raleigh Little Theatre’s production of Thornton Wilder’s seminal Our Town. There’s always been an elegiac quality to Wilder’s work, but it’s often overshadowed by the play’s sense of nostalgia. In this production, that wistfulness is balanced by the knowledge that even in the idyllic memories of the past, moments of discontent lurk beneath the surface.
