What a star-studded occasion this is. Headlong Artistic Director, Jeremy Herrin, is reviving Arthur Miller’s classic play All My Sons at The Old Vic. As if that weren’t big enough news, the cast list includes mega-stars Sally Field, Bill Pullman, Jenna Coleman and Colin Morgan, amongst others – and it’s looking in fantastic shape.
With a cast comprising those four stars of the stage and screen, along with the likes of Bessie Carter, Gunnar Cauthery, Oliver Johnstone, Kayla Meikle and Sule Rimi. The play is certainly powerful enough – the story of a 1947 American family whose long-buried truths come back to haunt them and tear their comfortable lifestyles apart – but with such a talented cast at its disposal, All My Sons is looking like it’ll be one of the highlights of 2019 already.

And we’ve been lucky enough to be treated to a small insight into the rehearsal room, as the stars mingle ahead of their first performance on 13 April. Take a look at Johan Persson’s photos below, and get booking to see All My Sons at The Old Vic.
All My Sons stars Field – the two-time Academy and three-time Emmy Award winner – and Pullman – a Tony Award-winner, alongside BAFTA Nominee Coleman (who played the title role in ITV drama Victoria) and Morgan (the title role of the BBC show Merlin). The show is recommended for ages 11+.
All My Sons first opened on Broadway in 1947, winning the New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award and two Tony Awards. It was later adapted for films in 1948 and 1987, and was last seen in London in 2010 at the Apollo Theatre.
