All My Sons, is moving and powerful epic that examines wartime profiteering and its corrosive effects on family life.
Described as ‘one of the greatest American plays to condemn ruthless capitalist greed’ (Time Out Chicago), All My Sons is a forensic examination of what happens when a man sells his soul to live the American Dream.
Arthur Miller’s first great play – which won the Tony Award for Best Play when premiered in New York in 1947 – takes place in the garden of Joe and Kate Keller’s home in industrial Ohio. The Kellers are still grieving for their son Larry, a pilot who was lost in the war. Something else they can’t put behind them is the court case that put Joe’s partner in jail, a result of the cracked engine heads Joe’s factory produced that caused 21 pilots to crash to their deaths.
