Arthur Miller started writing All My Sons in 1945, inspired by World War II and the true-life story of a woman who alerted authorities to her father’s wartime wrong-doing. The play focuses on the story of a businessman who once narrowly avoided financial ruin by shipping cracked machine parts to the military. He blames his business partner and builds an empire, but eventually his crime comes back to haunt him. The play was produced after the war and won the 1947 Tony.
Joe Keller, a successful businessman, lives comfortably with his wife, Kate, and son, Chris, in a suburban American neighborhood. They have only one sadness in their lives – the loss of their other son, Larry, who went missing in World War II. After three years, Kate still clings to the hope that her son is alive. Chris would like her to give up that hope because he wants to marry Ann, an old neighbor and Larry’s former fiancée.
Cast includes Fred Sirois as Joe Keller playing opposite Karleen Hayden as his wife. Jacob Fisch plays their son. Other cast members include Tess McHugh, Todd Langley, Bill Douglas, Pat Douglas, Evan Brooksby, Maddie Illenberg and Liam White.
