About All My Sons
Written by Arthur Miller
Presented by the Fylde Coast Players
In the aftermath of World War 11, two families struggle to come to terms with the brutal reality of what they have lost and gained.
Joe and Kate Keller have two sons. Chris, who has returned battle-scarred from the war, and Larry, who was missing in action, presumed dead. Kate’s refusal to accept Larry’s death threatens conflict within the family, when Chris brings home ‘Larry’s girl’, Ann, in order to announce his own engagement to her.
Joe considers the protection of his family and his hard-earned business to be all important. However, his son Chris’s recent raw experiences on the battlefield, and the consequent loss of his men, mean he has a very different outlook on life, morals, honesty and ethics. The confrontations that ensue lead to the uncovering of a shameful family secret.
Provocative and heart-breaking, All My Sons is a compelling story of love, guilt and the corrupting power of greed. It is one of the true classic plays or the 20th Century.
All My Sons was first performed on 29th January 1947 and ran for 348 performances. A year later it was made into a Hollywood film starring Edward G Robinson and Burt Lancaster.
