All My Sons

AAR-NT-All-My-SonsArthur Miller’s provocative portrait of life in post-World War II America, New Theatre presents All My Sons from 26 April 2023.

Joe and Kate Keller appear to be the perfect Middle American couple: he’s a successful businessman and she’s a home-maker. Together, they’re the embodiment of the American Dream.

But there are cracks in the façade. Joe escaped a wartime charge of supplying defective parts to combat planes by letting his partner take the blame, and he’s been living with the guilt ever since.

Larry, their younger son and his parent’s favourite, was declared missing in action during the war, but three years later, Kate stubbornly refuses to accept his death.

Meanwhile, older son Chris is attempting to win the love of the father he idolizes. But instead of reconciliation, old wounds are opened, and the bitter recriminations that ensue expose painful and unforgivable truths.

Arthur Miller’s searing drama of a family in crisis, written in 1946, was also a scathing indictment of post-war America. Half a century later, it is still devastatingly relevant.

Forty-three years after New Theatre first presented Arthur Miller’s great play, they are delighted to bring this revival to Sydney’s stages, and welcome back director Saro Lusty-Cavallari (Animal Farm), together with designers Kate Beere and Aron Murray, who last collaborated on Significant Other.

The cast includes returning actors Kath Gordon (Things I Know to be True), Bridget Haberecht (Breaking the Code) and Kaitlyn Thor (Stupid Fucking BirdControl) and making their New Theatre debuts, Kyle Barrett, Liam Greinke, Michael Harris, James Hartley, Greg Poppleton and Mariah Stock.
