The play Our Town is adapted from American playwright Thornton Wilder’s works by James Chi-Ming Liang, the founder and the director of the Godot Theatre Company in 1989. The story took place in a small town called Danshui in Taiwan in the 1950s. The play describes a youth couple, Shao-Wei Chen and Emily, grow up, fall in love and depart, genuinely presenting the experiences of getting mature which shared by all Taiwanese and reflecting human’s cherishing and caring for their lives in a loving and sweet environment. The play has been popular for the past 25 years and is remade every several years, with the well-known artists Zhang Yusheng, Cai Qin and Tao Dawei starred in different versions. This is the 7th version for the 25th anniversary of the founding of the Godot Theatre Company. Famous Taiwan TV host C.T. Cao will join hands with Vega Tsai and Patrick Lee , to present the touching drama.
