More Information


Set in a 1930s Brooklyn automobile parts warehouse with a strong cast of richly detailed characters, Miller draws on his own personal experience to explore the monotonous struggle to make a living and the dreams of a young man yearning for a college education in the midst of people stumbling through life in a haze of hopelessness and despondency.

About the Playwright:

Arthur Miller was one of the leading American playwrights of the twentieth century. Living through young adulthood during the Great Depression, Miller was shaped by the poverty that surrounded him, which demonstrated to him the fragility and vulnerability of human existence in the modern era. He was a prominent figure in American theatre, writing dramas that include awards-winning plays such as All My Sons, Death of a Salesman, and The Crucible. Miller won a Tony Award for Death of a Salesman as well as a Pulitzer Prize.

Miller was often in the public eye from the late 1940s to the early 1960s, a period during which he testified before the House Un-American Activities Committee. About his work, Miller once said, “Well, all the plays that I was trying to write were plays that would grab an audience by the throat and not release them, rather than presenting an emotion which you could observe and walk away from.” Arthur Miller passed away in 2005 at the age of 89, leaving a legacy that has forever shaped the American character and literary landscape.
