Description

All My Sons, the first great success of Arthur Miller’s supremely influential career, is a compelling story of love, guilt and the corrupting power of greed. Joe Keller (Randy Hurst) is alleged to have supplied World War II fighter planes with defective engines, leading to the deaths of innocent pilots – a crime for which his business partner took the fall. One of Keller’s sons, himself a pilot, is thought to have been killed in action. But his mother (Joyce Henderson) can’t accept his death and equally, can’t accept that her dead son’s fiancée has transferred her affections to her other son. The confrontations that ensue lead to the uncovering of a shameful family secret.

About the Ticket Supplier: Actors Theatre of San Francisco

Founded in August of 1989 by a group of professional actors and directors who shared a common desire to produce ensemble theatre works, the founding members of the Actors Theatre of San Francisco committed themselves to creating a permanent repertory company whose work would reflect their ideals of ensemble theatre: a theatre where all the participants share the same artistic vision, have a unified approach to the rehearsal process and a desire to create revelatory theatre that surpasses their desire for individual gain. The founding members gave themselves no restriction as to style, content or period. Instead, they committed themselves to producing theatre that is designed to enlighten and illuminate the human condition.
