TheatreWorks New Milford to Stage ALL MY SONS
On Friday, September 21, TheatreWorks New Milford will open their next main stage production of Arthur Miller's award-winning drama, All My Sons.
Based on a true story, All My Sons, which is Miller's 1947 exploration of dark truths and cruel ironies, places us on a serene street where the destinies of several families intertwine in the wake of wartime, caught up in the struggle between personal responsibility and duty to their country.
Joe Keller, a successful, self-made man has done a terrible thing: during World War II, hurriedly trying to meet an order from the Army, knowingly sold them defective airplane parts which later caused the planes to crash and killed 21 men. He engineered his own exoneration and falsely turned in his business partner. Now, his son is about to marry the partner's daughter, the affair is revisited, and his lie of a life is revealed.
With a strong script wrapped in the unmistakable cadence of American mid-century dialect, "All My Sons" unwinds multiple plot lines that explore the destructive power of guilt - legal, familial and even sensual.
This production is under the direction of Jane Farnol of Kent, CT and the cast includes Aaron Kaplan (Bethel, CT), Deron Bayer (Lakeville, CT), Dylan Sosbe (New Milford, CT), Jonathan Ross (Thomaston, CT), Mark Feltch (Newtown, CT), Meg Jones (New Milford, CT), Noel Desiato (Sherman), Paige Gray (Danbury, CT), Rufus De Rham (Kent, CT), and Stacy Lee Frome (New Milford, CT).
