Reviving a classic play like Arthur Miller's All My Sons enables us to examine the cost of the American Dream, while exploring the themes and ideas which have a relevance to all our lives: guilt, betrayal, deceit and family - universal concepts which make us who we are.
1947. Joe and Kate Keller, an all-American couple, are living with the ghosts of World War II.
Joe is successful, a self-made businessman, loving family man and pillar of the community. He is a partner in a machine shop building fighter plane parts. Joe and Kate's happiness is overcast by one thing - their son is missing in action, presumed dead by all but his mother...
All My Sons is a searing investigation of honesty, guilt and the corrupting power of greed. The play was Arthur Miller's first success, establishing him as a leading voice in theatre. This collaboration features the distinguished actors, Ray Shell and Doña Croll. Michael Buffong is Artistic Director of Talawa Theatre Company. His previous credits include Moon on a Rainbow Shawl, the multi award-winning A Raisin in the Sun and Private Lives.
