Watch this heartrending tale of Victor Franz, a young man who is forced to set aside his dreams of going to college and end up support his father after the Great Depression, while his brother goes on to become a surgeon.
Why Watch The Price
The two-time Tony Award-winning play ‘The Price’ has been considered to be one of the best plays of all time and has constantly been revived. This edition at Wyndham’s Theatre stars the immensely talented David Suchet (Hercule Poirot) and Brendan Coyle (Downton Abbey). With a spectacular performance that pays homage to the original plot while adding its own unique flavor, this is a show you cannot miss this spring. The critically-acclaimed play deals with how people are forced to create illusions for themselves because the truth is far too difficult to face. There is something quintessentially human about the way estranged characters are forced to confront each other after 30 years of being apart. While Victor sacrifices his career to take care of his ailing father, he is forced to reunite with his brother who went on to become a surgeon while disregarding the needs of his family.
The Price is as much a story of love, forgiveness, and familial bonding as it is about resentment and sacrifice. Arthur Miller’s masterpiece follows the story of Victor and Walter Franz, two estranged brothers who haven’t seen or spoken to each other for thirty years. They are brought back to their childhood home by the news of their father’s death. What ensues is a series of bitter standoffs that revolve around the decisions the two made when they were young. While Victor stayed back to help his father after the Great Depression, Franz went on to become a surgeon. The show brilliantly explores the idea of family and how varied interpretations of this idea can lead us down different roads.
