Loved it! Classic Arthur Miller, very strong performances by all (including the understudies). Pace moved well, scenic design captured the essence of the time period. Recommend highly!!

Well done, everyone. A classic play executed to perfection by a high caliber group of actors. I go to two of these each week and am not in the industry and do not know anyone in the play. This group does a fantastic job on a play that presents...continued

Fantastic production of All My Sons! All of the actors were first rate; I can't wait to see what they do next at the Ruskin Theatre Company. Will definitely go back and tell all my friends!

Quotes & Highlights

“Edwards’ production is anchored by crackling acting work… Maury Sterling’s crushed boyish performance as the scorned son of the framed co-worker is brilliant, as is Austin Highsmith’s unusually appealing Ann, whose shocking reveal about the dead son (often one of the more contrived plot twists in most productions) is here powerfully well-motivated and believable.” -LA Weekly, GO
“…his simple staging… has, on the whole, an emotional authenticity that honors the play’s timeless themes… Linke’s Joe is a man with a guilty secret whose carefully maintained bonhomie is about to fracture at the seams, while Telford’s deceptively frail and half-mad Kate possesses a steel infrastructure that could withstand any combat mission. Their linchpin performances set an impressive standard for this thoroughly worthy cast.” -The Los Angeles Times
“…it all really shines with All My Sons at Ruskin, what more could you ask?”
“This absolutely brilliant piece of writing has made a welcome return to the Southland in a production at Santa Monica’s Ruskin Group Theatre that is about as fine as they come”
“I have seen Arthur Miller’s All My Sons many times. I have read it more. I directed a production of it several years ago. I did not think I could be moved again by this play. Because of that, I almost assigned one of my other writers to review it. Besides knowing I denied that writer this experience, I am very glad I decided to put my jaded self into my car and drive to the damned theatre.”
“This production of Arthur Miller’s classic is superbly presented by an extraordinarily accomplished cast. I’ve seen many productions of this play over the years and this just might be the best acting that I have witnessed! From the opening scene until the dramatic ending, director Edward Edwards and the ensemble will keep you emotionally involved with the gripping progression of events in this Tony Award-winning play. This was my first exposure to the intimate space of the Ruskin Theatre Group in Santa Monica. If the quality of this production is any indication of the rest of their Season, you’ll want to sign up now!”


A stunning moral conflict resurfaces in this Tony Award winning play, as

crimes from the past threaten the future of two seemingly typical families.

This gripping American classic reveals the lethal consequences of deceit and greed. A Tony Award-winning play, as relevant today as the year it was written.
