fringe logoThornton Wilder's iconic play "Our Town," which celebrates the universality of the human condition, is set in a New Hampshire village. But the story could take place anywhere, including Reading, Pa. Director George Hatza's concept is to make that connection, and to assist in that vision the production will assume an immersive approach. Welcoming a Berks County audience into the homes, streets, churches and finally the cemetery of Grover's Corners seeks to unite the play's characters intimately with its audience. Separated by a century, those observing the stories of the citizens of a New England hamlet at the dawn of the 20th century will see themselves -- along with those who lived before and those who are yet to be born -- as one and the same.


Hatza, who also serves as Literary Director for Reading Theater Project, is a writer and critic. He holds a master of fine arts degree in theater directing from Boston University.
