Darien High School Theatre 308 invites you to their production of Our Town by Thornton Wilder at 2 p.m., Saturday, Nov. 17. This performance was scheduled after Thursday night’s performance was cancelled, and tickets bought for that performance will be honored at this one.
Andrew Rejan directs the show, and here is what he notes:
“Sometimes regarded as the quintessential high school play, Our Town is often staged as a bland, nostalgic museum piece, obscuring the essence of one of the most experimental, radical, and provocative works in the American theatrical canon,” said Andrew Rejan, director of the show.
“While the absence of a traditional set initially may make the play appear simple, Thornton Wilder’s masterpiece — still shocking 80 years after it premiered — is layered, complex, disturbing, and sometimes beautiful,” Rejan said.

The show is entirely different from any traditional view of Our Town you may have, and you do not want to miss it. We are proud to present a show that uses truthful actors to portray a story that everyone can find genuinely heartfelt and real.
Due to a special seating arrangement — with the audience on the stage — the number of seats will be limited, so get your tickets as they will sell out fast online. Tickets are $10 for students and $20 for adults. Tickets sold at the door are subject to availability.
You do not want to miss this new look at a show celebrating 80 years. Please join us for performances at 7 p.m. any of three different nights, from Thursday through Saturday, Nov. 15 to 17.
