Show Info

All My Sons, the first great success of Arthur Miller's supremely influential career — is a compelling story of love, guilt and the corrupting power of greed.

Joe Keller (David Suchet) is alleged to have supplied World War II fighter planes with defective engines, leading to the deaths of innocent pilots - a crime for which his business partner took the fall. One of Keller's sons, himself a pilot, is thought to have been killed in action.

But his mother (Zoe Wanamaker) can't accept his death and equally, can't accept that her dead son's fianc?e has transferred her affections to her other son.

The confrontations that ensue lead to the uncovering of a shameful family secret...

What press had to say...

“It is time to bring out the superlatives. Not only is the acting tremendous and every visual detail precise, Davies also makes you realise Miller’s play is a portrait of a society as well as of a flawed individual.” — Michael Billington for The Guardian

“It is as potent a production of Miller’s work as one could hope to see.” — Henry Hitchings for The Evening Standard

“Howard Davies’s handsome if sedate production has great clarity, bringing out Miller’s arguments and anxieties about the essential selfishness of the capitalist system but it lacks the degree of emotion that should bring an audience crashing to the ground with each revelation.” — Neil Norman for The Express

“This is a play of extraordinary power and emotional depth, and when it is performed as wonderfully as it is here, Miller’s theme of man’s responsibility towards his fellow men feels genuinely noble rather than merely didactic...This is a stunning production of a modern classic and one that those who see it will never forget.” — Charles Spencer for Daily Telegraph

“Gripping, strongly cast revival.” — John Thaxter for The Stage

“Miller’s Ibsenite plot occasionally creaks and is marred by certain implausibilities; but while it lasts, you are swept up by the production’s splendid self-conviction.” — Paul Taylor for The Independent

“Along with some excellent acting, we can admire all over again the way in which this family drama also perfectly illustrates how man’s responsibility to his fellow man goes way beyond his family and the domestic economy.” — Christopher Hart for The Times
