How far would a man go to protect his family, his interests, and his legacy? Joe Keller (Bill Pullman) the patriarch in All My Sons, desperately wants to secure and maintain the financial security and legacy he spent so many years building, ready to hand it down to his surviving son Chris.
At the same time, Joe’s wife Kate (Sally Field) is still waiting for their eldest son Larry to return from war, determined that he is alive and will marry the former girl-next-door, Ann, the daughter of Joe’s former business partner who is sitting in prison, punished for Joe’s crimes. To complicate this family drama, Chris and Ann are in love and want to get married.
In All My Sons, Arthur Miller creates a post-war American family in a tragic downfall of lies, greed, love, and loss, and demands its audience examine their own social responsibilities to all the sons of American wars.
“The play is just devastating – and given a production as thoughtful and detailed as the one provided here by director Jeremy Herrin, it has an intellectual and emotional power that speaks as loudly today as in the immediate post-war period in which it is set.” Sarah Crompton, WhatsOnStage
