“We’re thrilled that our inaugural production at the Eternity Playhouse will be one of the most celebrated plays of the twentieth century, All My Sons,” says Company Director Glenn Terry.
“We believe a theatre ought to be a vibrant, inspiring and welcoming place, and our new home, the Eternity Playhouse, will be just that.”
Opening in November, the repurposed Burton Street Tabernacle, is set to become a prominent and iconic theatre destination in Sydney. With its stunning architecture, brand new state-of the-art facilities and iconic place in Sydney’s history, the Eternity Playhouse will be a very special place to see live theatre.
All My Sons will be directed by renowned theatre director Iain Sinclair and features a stellar cast including Marshall Napier, Toni Scanlan, Briallen Clarke, Robin Goldsworthy, Anthony Gooley, Andrew Henry and Meredith Penman.
Set in 1947 in mid-west America, All My Sons is a story about an all American family torn apart by a shameful secret. A compelling and heartbreaking story about family ties, patriotic duty and personal greed.
Joe Keller is a proud family man, successful business owner and local hero. But when he places the family’s prosperity above the lives of others, there are devastating consequences for all.
“All My Sons is one of the most moving pieces of theatre ever written,” says Director Iain Sinclair. “It shows a very different side to the Arthur Miller who went on to write Death of a Salesman and The Crucible.”
“It is a piece that requires actors with enormous emotional range and fortitude of spirit and I feel very honoured to open the Eternity Playhouse with such an extraordinary company and fiercely pertinent play.”
All My Sons will preview from Friday 1 November, and open on Tuesday 5 November. The 2014 Darlinghurst Theatre Company season will be announced later in 2013.
