The Price – Arthur Miller's classic play
Welcome to Jonathan Church’s 50th anniversary production of Arthur Miller’s The Price. The play enjoyed a sell-out run in Bath in early summer 2018 and now it's set to transfer to the West End, starring David Suchet and Brendan Coyle.
The story? Meet two alienated brothers, Victor and Walter Franz. Victor is a policeman on the verge of retirement. Walter is a successful surgeon. It is almost twenty years since they last hooked up. Now their dad has died and they're meeting to sell off some family furniture. After the Great Depression, Victor had given up going to university to support his father. His wife Esther and brother Walter, plus the wily antique dealer Gregory Solomon, all have their own agenda when the brothers meet again. But it's time for Victor to face the sacrifice he made all those years ago, and deal with his feelings about it.
In 1971 The Price was adapted for TV, from a script by Miller. Broadcast as part of the NBC Hallmark Hall of Fame series in the USA, David Burns played Mr. Solomon, Colleen Dewhurst played Mrs. Franz, George C. Scott played Victor Franz, and Barry Sullivan played Walter Franz.
The smash hit TV show was nominated for four Emmies including Outstanding Single Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role for Scott, and Outstanding Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in Drama for Burns, Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Drama - A Single Program, for the director Fielder Cook, and Outstanding Single Program - Drama or Comedy for David Susskind, the producer. Scott and Cook each won their nominated Emmies.
Your venue is the magnificent Wyndham’s Theatre and the show plays from 5th February to 27th April 2019. Suchet and Coyle are joined by Adrian Lukis and Sara Stewart, both of whom also reprise their roles from the Bath production. And set designer Simon Higlett has created the most remarkable attic setting stuffed with dangling period furniture, the ultimate in claustrophobia. This really is a classic you won't want to miss, an extremely clever play written by an extremely clever man, played by a collection of extremely talented actors.
