All My Sons opens at Pentacle Theatre on Friday, April 17, and runs through Saturday, May 9. The production is generously sponsored by Hope Orthopedics of Oregon.
In Arthur Miller’s brilliant classic drama, Joe Keller and Steve Deever, partners in a machine shop during World War II, turned out defective airplane parts, causing the deaths of many men. Deever went to prison while Keller escaped punishment and went back to business, becoming very wealthy in the ensuing years.
Miller’s powerful play explores themes of family, love, guilt, blame and the price of achieving the American Dream, building to a climax of electrifying intensity. As The Guardian’s reviewer Michael Billington observed, “Miller’s play is a portrait of a society as well as of a flawed individual.”
Winner of the Drama Critics’ Award for Best New Play in 1947, All My Sons is vibrant and timely theater.
Jeff Sanders directs Robert Herzog, Robynn Hayek, David Ballantyne, Holly Beaman, Ryan Snyder, Ross Waite, Teresa Waite, Ryan Clifford, Julia Sjakovs and Soren Urban in this moving Pentacle Theatre production.
