All My Sons

Dundee Rep

“There are certain men who would rather see everybody hung before
they’ll take the blame…” Read more …

The Keller family appear to be living the American dream. Joe Keller has a successful business supplying engines to the U.S. air force, while his wife Kate runs their house. In the aftermath of World War II, one of their two sons is missing in action, presumed dead – a fate which Kate cannot accept. As secrets come to light with devastating consequences, Joe must confront his past, while struggling to keep his family together.

A gripping story of a family in crisis, All My Sons is a timeless classic from one of the 20th century’s greatest playwrights, Arthur Miller (Death of a Salesman, A View from the Bridge), and is directed by Stellar Quines’ Artistic Director Jemima Levick (The Lover, Great Expectations, The Glass Menagerie).

The critical consensus

Does exactly what a good revival of a classic should do: it invites its audience to look at a familiar work with fresh eyes.

****(*)Allan Radcliffe, 25/02/2019

This production emerges as a memorable and all-too-timely battle between Chris’s hard-won, fragile idealism, and a practical brutalism that may have been defeated in 1947, but is now, once again, frighteningly in the ascendant.

****(*)Joyce McMillan, The Scotsman, 27/02/2019

Life appears to be very much elsewhere at the start of Jemima Levick’s stately revival of Arthur Miller’s devastating dissection of truth, honour and the wider consequences of ignoble actions.

****(*)Neil Cooper, Coffee-Table Notes, 28/02/2019

That director Jemima Levick’s production fails to measure up to the play’s immense stature has nothing to do with the impressive cast or, indeed, David Paul Jones’s lovely, emotive musical score.
