All My Sons

Rapture Theatre 
Presents
All My Sons by Arthur Miller

To honour the centenary of Arthur Miller's birth, Rapture Theatre, with support from Creative Scotland, will produce, in association with The Beacon in Greenock, an Arthur Miller “Season”. This will consist of two classic Miller plays: All My Sons and The Last Yankee.

Set just after the Second World War in the backyard of Joe and Kate Keller, this gripping and passionate drama ranks as one of the classics of our time. The Kellers try to keep alive the memory of their son Larry, who disappeared in the war, by the planting of a tree in his honour. But Larry’s disappearance is not the only part of the family’s past that they can’t put behind them. Not everybody has forgotten the court case that put Joe’s partner in jail or the cracked engine heads Joe’s factory produced, which caused the deaths of twenty-one pilots.

Following a stormy night when Larry’s tree is blown down, the Kellers are threatened by a series of events that could destroy the very foundations of their lives.

With all the tension of a taut thriller, All My Sons is a powerful drama that crackles with emotion and excitement! See the first classic play, from one of the finest playwrights of the twentieth century, in a great production by Scotland’s leading touring theatre.
