Theatrical Outfit is currently offering an unprecedented event- a repertory run of Our Town and The Laramie Project– and four more days this month, audiences can take in both in one day.
On September 21, 22, 28, and 29, the plays about small town American life will play at 2:30pm and 7:30pm, respectively. Check out the graphic below for details on which play takes which timeslot each day!
Considered by many to be the greatest American play ever, Our Town depicts the town of Grover’s Corners in three acts: “Daily Life,” “Love and Marriage,” and “Death and Eternity.” Narrated by a stage manager character and performed with minimal props and sets, this classic chronicles the Webb and Gibbs families as their children fall in love, marry, and eventually – in one of the most famous scenes in theatre – die.
The Laramie Project
In 1998, a university student named Matthew Shepard was kidnapped, beaten, and tied to a prairie fence outside Laramie, Wyoming. When he died days later, the world learned Shepard was targeted because he was gay. A breathtaking collage of the local residents, The Laramie Project is virtuously determined to find the light in an event of harrowing darkness and exposes the depths to which humanity can sink and the heights of compassion of which we are capable.
Now through September 29 at The Balzer Theater at Herren’s (84 Luckie St. NW, Atlanta, GA 30303).
