It is an award-winning play that would most likely prove a worthy challenge for even the most experienced of actors and actresses.

But students from Framlingham College delighted audiences during their recent staging of Thornton Wilder’s Our Town.

The three act play is set in the fictional American town of Grover’s Corners and tells the story of people’s ordinary everyday lives in the early 20th Century.

It is performed without a set and the actors mime their actions without the use of props.

But the students from Framlingham College rose to the challenge during their three nights of performance, which took place at the end of last month at the Headmaster Porter Theatre.

The play won Wilder the Pullitzer Prize for Drama in 1938 and became a success on Broadway.
