In Arthur Miller’s All My Sons, we are introduced to the seemingly picture-perfect life of Joe Keller: A successful businessman supported by a loving family and a well-respected member of the community, the Keller's are haunted by the memory of their son who was a pilot in the army.
Set against the aftermath of World War II, amid reports of their son going missing in action, the couple continues to cling to the ideal that their son is still alive.
The play puts the spotlight on two prominent actors, Don Warrington (best known for his performance in Death in Paradise) and Dona Croll (who plays Vera Corrigan in Doctors).
Here’s what the critics have to say about this powerful and gripping drama now at the Regent's Open Air Theatre:
David Jays, The Guardian: This revival of Arthur Miller's 1947 war-imbued drama doesn't quite hit home, but intensifies as night falls.
Serena Davies, The Telegraph: A summer's evening was the perfect accompaniment for All My Sons.
Henry Hitchings, Evening Standard: Brid Brennan is expressive as his loving but alienated wife Kate, Charles Aitken impresses as his tightly wound son Chris, and Amy Nuttall brings a bright-eyed vitality to Ann, the wholesome object of Chris’s affections.
Annie Cox, Stage Review: It’s a powerful and bold drama, wonderfully played, that’s based on a true story but given undertones of a Greek tragedy by Miller.
