  • "From The Book's Cover: Three Plays: Our Town - Skin Of Our Teeth - The Matchmaker. This volume brings together the definitive texts of three outstanding plays by one of our most distinguished writers. Two of them, Our town and The Skin Of Our Teeth, were awarded the Pulitzer Prize. The Matchmaker has never before been published. Our Town has been revised from the previously published version. All three plays were hits the most recent being The Matchmaker, which was first presented at the Edinburgh Festival in the summer of 1954, then played at the Royal Theatre in London before opening in New York in the fall of 1955 for a run of 489 performances. In his new preface for this volume Mr. Wilder writers: "The theatre has lagged behind the other arts in finding the 'new ways' to express how men and women think and feel in our time. I am not one of the new dramatists we are looking for. I wish I were. I hope I have played a part in preparing the way for them. I am not an innovator but a rediscoverer of for-gotten goods and I hope a remover of obtrusive bric-a-brac. And as I view the work of my contemporaries I seem to feel that I am exceptional in one thing - I give (don't I?) the impression of having enormously enjoyed it."

  • "The play is considered a classic portrayal of small-town American life, set in the town of Grover's Corners, New Hampshire. We follow the lives of George Gibbs, a doctor's son, and Emily Webb, the daughter of the newspaper editor, through their courtship, marriage, and Emily's death in childbirth. However, the style of "Our Town" is sometimes considered more striking than the substance because of its lack of props and scenery. The play features a narrator, the Stage Manager, who sits at the side of the unadorned stage and explains the action to the audience."
