Why Watch All My Sons
Arthur Miller is unarguably one of America’s greatest playwrights, and he has given American theatre legendary plays like ‘The Death of a Salesman,’ ‘The Crucible,’ ‘A View from the Bridge’ and ‘All My Sons.’ His plays have an immortal quality that makes their revivals fit the current narrative seamlessly. The latest Broadway production of All My Sons has appealed to viewers and critics alike, and the New York Stage Review calls it “as close to perfect as it can be.”
All My Sons is directed by Jack O’Brien, three-time Tony-award winner who is known for his plays ‘Hairspray’, ‘Henry IV,’ and ‘The Coast of Utopia.’ The play sees the return of the celebrated actress Annette Bening, who plays the role of Kate evocatively bringing forth the emotions of a grieving mother and a conflicted wife. The other actors Tracy Letts, Benjamin Walker and Francesca Carpanini pull in their weight equally.
The stage effects play an essential role in the show and thanks to the efforts of the costume, set and video, the audience is taken back in time to the grim environment of post-war America. The play itself is rife with symbolism and relevance that holds true even seven decades after its premiere in 1947. Capitalism and sheer negligence associated with corporate greed have only increased, and the moral fabric seems to have shredded further. The play ponders on all these aspects with a keen eye on how it all impacts the ties of a family.
All My Sons is a tragic play set in the USA in the aftermath of World War II in 1947. It follows the Keller and Deever families whose lives are intertwined through their children. Joe and Kate Keller are a respectable family whose American Dream has come true. They are well-settled and have two kids, but tragedy strikes as they lose their son ‘Larry’ in the war and nothing is ever the same.
Kate believes that Larry is not dead, but his girlfriend Ann believes otherwise and who is already moving on with Larry’s brother Chris! Kate cannot fathom Ann and Chris’s relationship, but it’s not just them, Ann’s brother doesn’t want her to get married to Chris too. He believes that Joe Keller was responsible for their father going to jail on charges of providing the Army with faulty airplane engines.
Truths stumble out, and Chris has to decide if he wishes to pardon his father or send him to jail for his crimes. Watch the play to find out if Larry is alive, if Chris and Ann get together and what Chris’s decision is about his father.
