Overview

Joe Keller and Herbert Deever, partners in a machine shop during the war, turned out defective airplane parts, causing the deaths of many men. Deever was sent to prison while Keller escaped punishment and went on to make a lot of money. In a work of tremendous power, a love affair between Keller's son, Chris, and Ann Deever, Herbert's daughter, the bitterness of George Keller, who returns from the war to find his father in prison and his father's partner free, and the reaction of a son to his father's guilt escalate toward a climax of electrifying intensity.

Winner of the Drama Critics' Award for Best New Play in 1947, All My Sons established Arthur Miller as a leading voice in the American theater. All My Sons introduced, themes that thread through Miller's work as a whole: the relationships between fathers and sons and the conflict between business and personal ethics.

In performance, this has always been one of my all-time favorite pieces by Arthur Miller. I'd never read it before, and I'm currently stage managing a reader's theatre that includes scenes from four different Miller plays, so I decided now was the time to crack the spine of this one. Just as good textually as it is in performance, for sure, and almost definitely my favorite.

"All My Sons" is completely and totally heartbreaking. It continually twists and turns you so that you barely know which direction you're facing, and I found myself absolutely floored in the final scene. Beautiful, beautiful play.

The actual text was an amazing rollercoaster of a ride, taking you from the peeks and valleys of your emotions, but the performance was very medioca
