All My Sons
by Arthur Miller

Great for A-level Drama Students

28 Sep – 5 Oct 2024

America, 1947. Despite hard choices and even harder knocks, Joe and Kate Keller are a success story. They have built a home, raised two sons and established a thriving business.

In the family’s garden, an apple tree – a memorial to their son Larry, lost in WW2 – has been torn down by a storm. But his loss is not the only part of the family’s past they can’t put behind them. Not everybody’s forgotten the court case that put Joe’s partner in jail, or the cracked engine heads his factory produced which caused it and dropped twenty-one pilots out of the sky.

Long buried truths are forced to the surface and the price of the Kellers’ American dream is laid bare in Arthur Miller’s 20th century classic.

Tickets are priced at just £10 for school groups, making it an affordable way to offer your pupils a truly memorable night of theatre.

We all must face the moment of truth that we won’t live forever. Lear, parent and monarch of unquestioned power, must divide their realm between three daughters. The first two quickly declare the love Lear is desperate to hear, yet favourite Cordelia shuns the performative circus. “Nothing” she answers, when asked to speak. And towards that nothing Lear’s world begins to slide.

As the new generation unleashes the consequences of their parents’ choices, Lear takes us into the eye of the storm and its trail of destruction.
