        Our Town 2: Love and Marriage

        Students examine the meaning of marriage and the role it plays in civilization in this scene from the MASTERPIECE 2003 production of the play, Our Town. The Stage Manager (played by Paul Newman) delivers a brief sermon just before the marriage of Emily and George, the two youthful protagonists of the play. The Stage Manager acknowledges that marriage is considered a sacrament by some, yet it can also cause confusion and uncertainty. See Teaching Tips for how to use the video in the classroom. This resource, aimed at ELA and drama teachers, is part of the MASTERPIECE Collection and accompanies other resources from Our Town: The Way We Were and A Good Rest.
