More Information

Description

Miller’s ambitious and personal 1964 masterpiece explores a new sense of non-linear theatricality in its powerful study of one man’s search for meaning through his memories and relationships. Images and scenes intertwine, illuminating his humanity and probing into the revealing, often painful events of his past.

About the Ticket Supplier: Eclipse Theatre Company

Eclipse Theatre Company chooses one playwright per season and focuses on the works of that playwright only. Through this total immersion in a specific playwright's world, the ensemble gains a thorough understanding of that playwright and the circumstances of his/her writing in order to bring a more concentrated and literate representation of that playwright to the audience.

Playwrights who have written more than three plays are eligible for consideration, as well as playwrights who have shown a definite range of growth throughout their careers. On deciding which plays to perform, a great factor is the challenge that the piece presents to the ensemble and its audience.

Since the inception of the one playwright-one season mission in 1997, playwrights that have been featured with Eclipse include French Playwright Jean Cocteau; Legendary American Playwrights Tennessee Williams, Lillian Hellman and Neil Simon, New York Playwrights Romulus Linney and John Guare, and Chicago native Keith Reddin.
