Mr. Webb

Character Analysis

Mr. Webb is a father, husband, and the editor of the local paper. Mr. Webb is also the political and social expert that the Stage Manager calls on to contextualize Grover’s Corners for the audience. The most we can say about Mr. Webb is that he’s a kindly man with a sense of humor. He shows concern for Simon Stimson, the town drunk, and his behavior with George on the day of the wedding is compassionate rather than intimidating.
