Set in post-World War II, Arthur Miller's landmark drama examines the relationships between fathers and sons and the price of living the American Dream. An explosive secret threatens to tear the family apart in this powerful play about the conflict between business ethics and taking responsibility for one's actions.
Winner of the first Tony Award and the New York Drama Critics' Circle Award for Best New Play, All My Sons established Miller as a leading voice in the American theatre. Based on a true story.
