Thornton Wilder’s “Our Town” takes place in a fictional American town called Grover’s Corners between 1901 and 1913. Often seen as a sentiment picture of the “the good old days,” the play was considered avant garde when it came out in 1938. It is a simple play about the complexities and nuances and beauty of what is, seemingly, everyday life. The cast includes freshman history and secondary education major Allie Cottom as Emily Webb and Caleb Vinoverski, a senior communication arts major and creative writing minor, as George Gibbs.

“Doubt: A Parable” won the 2005 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and Tony Award for Best Play. The play investigates an instance of doubt in a Catholic school in the Bronx in the 1960s and how people react under the pressure of feelings of skepticism and uncertainty. The cast includes Grace Scheller, a junior communication arts major and international studies minor, as Sister Aloysius, Hayden Wehrman, a junior computer science major and computer game design and mathematics minor, as Father Flynn, Jess Reynolds, a junior Spanish education major and English and theater minor, and Meredith Reed, a junior Christian ministries major and theater minor.
