All My Sons is Arthur Miller’s compelling story of forbidden love, loyalty, guilt and the corrupting power of greed.
In All My Sons, Joe Keller is alleged to have supplied World War II fighter planes with defective engines, leading to the deaths of innocent pilots, a crime for which his business partner took the fall. One of Keller’s sons, himself a pilot, is thought to have been killed in action. His mother can’t accept his death and equally can’t accept that her dead son’s fiancée has transferred her affections to her other son. The confrontations that ensue lead to the uncovering of a world-shaking family secret.
David Suchet, who plays Joe Keller in All My Sons, is probably best known for his screen performances as Belgian detective Hercule Poirot, a role he has played for two decades. Zoe Wanamaker, who plays his wife, is also best known for reoccurring screen performances in the Harry Potter films and in long running BBC sitcom My Family.
Director Howard Davies previously won a Laurence Olivier Award for his 2000 production of All My Sons, which was staged at the National Theatre.
Miller, who wrote All My Sons, is one of the United States’s greatest playwrights. His other plays include Death Of A Salesman, A View From The Bridge and The Crucible.
