PLAY OF THE DAY! Today's Play: AFTER THE FALL by Arthur Miller

During this time when productions all over the world have been put on pause, we are coming together to celebrate plays that have left their mark on theater history.

This week we will be focusing on the plays of Pulitzer Prize winning playwright, Arthur Miller.

Today's play, After the Fall!

After the Fall premiered on Broadway in 1964. The production was directed by Elia Kazan, and starred Barbara Loden as Maggie and Jason Robards Jr. as Quentin. Barbara Loden won the 1964 Tony Award for Best Featured Actress in a Play, and Jason Robards was nominated for the 1964 Tony Award for Best Actor in a Play.

The play is based off of Miller's recent divorce from Marilyn Monroe, and is considered to be one of Miller's least popular plays with critics. The plot is non-linear and takes on surrealist elements.
