All My Sons at The Electric Theatre 11 -14 April 2018

Arthur Miller’s iconic play – intensely moving and powerful.

Written in 1947, ‘All My Sons’ is credited with being Miller’s breakthrough play.

Ripping the American dream to shreds, it exposes an apparently ideal family that in reality is built on deceit, lies and shame. Miller focuses his microscope on the second world war and through its magnifying lens puts the misperception and ultimate distortion of loyalty on trial.

The play opens as the much loved tree – the family symbol of missing in action son, Larry – is blown down in a storm. It is a portent of disaster as the family move inexorably on a collision course that ultimately tears them apart, breaking them and turning the American Dream into a nightmare.

‘A play of extraordinary power and emotional depth’  THE DAILY TELEGRAPH
