In this homage to Wilder's classic play, Emily and Elizabeth fall in love in a small town, and then flash forward to the wedding of their son to their neighbors George and Louis' daughter. Homophobia, fear, and death still persist, but do not completely overcome in this witty and nostalgic exploration of love, loss, grief, commitment, and friendship as seen through the course of everyday life.

Published Reviews

"A suitably quiet narrative of two gay and lesbian couples and the children they raise to marry each other. Calm where it could be melodramatic, dignified where it could be drippy, Miller's new American version of Thornton Wilder may have the stuff of something much bigger than the half hour on view now."

Los Angeles Times

"Gracefully performed, Susan Miller's perceptive and poignant It's Our Town, Too ... is an impressive recasting of Thornton Wilder's Our Town that challenges traditional notions of family structure."

Los Angeles Reader

"A sophisticated and witty emulation of Thornton Wilder by Susan Miller that uses simple moral truths to lay out a smooth defense of gay and lesbian humanity."
