Analysis

Our Town Genre

Magical Realism, Drama

The whole dead person wandering among the living thing? That’s not reality! It must be magical realism! Also, the Stage Manager manages (pun!) to step into scenes and as an old woman, a drugstore clerk, and a church minister. Not so realistic. The "realism" part of "magical realism" covers the breakfast scenes, the drugstore romance, the wedding, etc.
