More about the production:

By Arthur Miller
Directed by Melia Bensussen

A timely revival that weighs the cost of the American dream. From the Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright behind Death of a Salesman, The Crucible, and A View from the Bridge comes another masterpiece of American theater. All My Sons brings us into the Keller’s backyard, where a neighborhood is forced to reckon with buried truths. The fallout exposes the fault lines beneath their lives, leading to the unravelling of a family. 75 years later, this Arthur Miller classic still packs a strong emotional punch and reveals as much about today’s America as it did when it first premiered.
