Thornton Wilder Chosen as One of THE GUARDIAN’s 'Heroes of 2014'

Three-time Pulitzer Prize winner Thornton Wilder was chosen as one of The Guardian’s 'Heroes of 2014.'

While Wilder’s most famous play, Our Town, has been performed just about everywhere in the United States, UK productions are rarer. But thanks to a revival at the Almeida theatre in London this year, playwright and writer Deborah Orr got to experience the timeless magic of Wilder’s work, and rave about it in The Guardian.
Orr writes:
“… I discovered that it was a masterpiece, as fresh and radical as the day it was written, and as profound and accessible a meditation on the human condition as anyone has ever created. . . . everyone should see this play at least once in their lives.”
