You don’t realise how people can hate, Chris, they can hate so much they’ll tear the world to pieces…’
America, 1947. Despite hard choices and even harder knocks, Joe and Kate Keller are a success story. They have built a home, raised two sons and established a thriving business.
But nothing lasts forever and their contented lives, already shadowed by the loss of their eldest boy to war, are about to shatter. With the return of a figure from the past, long buried truths are forced to the surface and the price of their American dream is laid bare.
Jeremy Herrin directs Sally Field, Bill Pullman, Jenna Coleman and Colin Morgan in Arthur Miller’s blistering drama, All My Sons.
What to expect:Acting
Recommended for:Anyone (38%)
A moving and deeply thought-provoking show with a talented cast that understand their characters. The first half is slow, but gives many a foreshadowing for the later unraveling of events. Still, the second half outshines it easily, becoming much more fast-paced and gripping. It is here that the actors' character work comes out. Especially Colin Morgan's performance carries the tragedy of the ruined naiveté of youth and the realization of his father's mistakes with an impressive delicacy. While the ending appears inevitable to the observant viewer, it loses none of its suspense or heartbreak at the characters' fates. Morgan and Field's last minutes on stage will rob you of your breath and leave you deeply distraught and uncomfortable.
