By the final curtain, Wilder has covered daily life, love, marriage, death and eternity in this forward-looking, Pulitzer Prize-winning, 3-act play. Guilford Technical Community College brings Our Town to the Triad Thursday, November 7th through the 16th with evening performances at 8:00 PM at the GTCC Fine Arts Theatre on the Jamestown campus.
