Celebrating the Arthur Miller centennial year, an eye-catching new Penguin Plays edition of the work that established him as a leading voice in the American theater
In 1947, Arthur Miller exploded onto Broadway with his first major work, All My Sons, winning both the New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award for Best New Play and the Tony for Best Author. The play introduced themes that would preoccupy Miller throughout his career: the relationships between fathers and sons and the conflict between business and personal ethics. This striking new edition adds All My Sons to the elegant Penguin Plays series—now in beautifully redesigned covers.
Joe Keller and Steve Deever, partners in a machine shop during World War II, turned out defective airplane parts, causing the deaths of many men. Deever was sent to prison while Keller escaped punishment and went back to business, making himself very wealthy in the ensuing years. A love affair between Keller’s son, Chris, and Ann Deever, Steve’s daughter; the bitterness of George Deever, who returns from the war to find his father in prison and his father’s partner free; and the reaction of Chris Keller to his father’s guilt escalate toward a climax of electrifying intensity.

In performance, this has always been one of my all-time favorite pieces by Arthur Miller. I'd never read it before, and I'm currently stage managing a reader's theatre that includes scenes from four different Miller plays, so I decided now was the time to crack the spine of this one. Just as good textually as it is in performance, for sure, and almost definitely my favorite.

"All My Sons" is completely and totally heartbreaking. It continually twists and turns you so that you barely know which direction you're facing, and I found myself absolutely floored in the final scene. Beautiful, beautiful play.

The actual text was an amazing rollercoaster of a ride, taking you from the peeks and valleys of your emotions, but the performance was very medioca
