THE HAPPY JOURNEY: THREE WILDER ONE-ACTS
by Thornton Wilder
directed by Dan Kozloff
When Thornton Wilder wrote his iconic Our Town, he was attempting to reproduce the style and the beauty of his earlier one-act plays, The Happy Journey to Trenton and Camden, and The Long Christmas Dinner. All of these feature the central question: “How do you live, knowing that you are mortal?” Included in this production is his provocative comedy, Childhood.
“Because so many of the plays we see nowadays are really suited to the small screen, it is easy to forget that a stage, no matter its size, can contain the cosmos. No one understood this better than Thornton Wilder, whose plays show us how to see the infinite in the utterly mundane.”
