ALL MY SONS is one of the best loved US classics from the twentieth century. Showcasing Arthur Miller’s brilliance in exploring human nature and the psychology of family, it tells a story which reflects society and how people driven by a lust for money can stoop to any extent to acquire wealth – urgently topical in 2018! All MY SONS is amongst Miller’s best known plays alongside A View from the Bridge, The Crucible and Pulitzer Prize-winning Death of a Salesman.
America 1947. Despite hard choices and even harder knocks Joe and Kate Keller are a success story. They have built a home, raised two sons and established a thriving business. But nothing lasts forever and their contented lives, already shadowed by the loss of their younger son to war, are about to shatter. With a return of a figure from the past, long buried truths are forced to the surface and the price of their American dream is laid bare.
ALL MY SONS is another Curriculum Play Live! co-production between Watergate Theatre and Barnstorm Theatre Company. This partnership is committed to developing projects in close collaboration with teachers and students studying these texts. In doing this we produce works for the stage by some of the greatest international writers.
