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.

Who is this show for?
Arthur Miller wrote adult plays with adult themes. This wonderful play isn't suitable for children.

The Price Was Excellent

I booked The Price to see David Suchet live on stage and I was very impressed with the play. A fantastic way to spend my Saturday night. Mr Suchet was superb.

The Price was an amazing story acted brilliantly by the cast. It gripped you from the outset. The actors were all superb and conveyed the change of moods well. Thoroughly recommend this,

A key into the deceptively difficult family relationships

Fantastic!!!!

A virtuoso performance.

Terrific show - amazing acting.

Worth going just for David Suchet

Arthur Miller is good value. The twists and turns of the two brothers' backstory in the second act became a little drawn-out, especially with the wife of one brother still on stage having little to say or do except emote. But it's still a good play. The stage always lit up when David Suchet came in and I would recommend going just for him alone, but he was just the best of a good cast, including the excellent stand-in at the performance I saw.


London Box Office customer

A good play with excellent performances from the cast of four. Naturally David was outstanding. Difficult to rate music 🎵 when it wasn’t a musical.


London Box Office customer

A thoughtful and provoking storyline. Wonderful performances from all of the cast . A delight from start to end .


London Box Office customer

Fascinating

This brilliant play dissects family relationships is surprising and chilling ways. It’s brilliantly constructed and written, and Miller really gets under the skin of the two main protagonists. All the acting is superb but I must say that for vocal production David Suchet give a masterclass. I was in the balcony and have a slight hearing impairment, and yet I could hear every syllable he uttered. His wonderful vocal range and superb characterisation add real quality and delight to this serious play.


London Box Office customer

Sion Lloyd, the understudy for Brendan Coyle was absolutely outstanding...! Played the role with the confidence and nuance of a true professional.


London Box Office customer

One of Arthur Miller’s best plays.

London Box Office customer

London Box Office customer

Twist in the tale

Sterling performance from all the actors with a mix of comedy and soul searching


London Box Office customer

A classic play, brilliantly well done

London Box Office customer

Entertaining and thought provoking

London Box Office customer

David Suchet excels

Very good, would have been excellent had it been twenty minutes shorter.


London Box Office customer

A wonderful play by a great playwright. It shows how family relationships and resentments are fostered by protagonists' subjective memories, interpretations and self justification. Great acting.


London Box Office customer

enjoyable

London Box Office customer

Brilkiant and moving

Just mesmerising theatre! Suchet and the cast embrace Arthur Miller’s wonderful play about lost dreams, family feuds and human decency with terrific performances. It has always been one of the great American plays but this cast serves it extraordinarily well. A must see.


London Box Office customer

The Price

Simply SUPERB! The whole left me speechless, acting out of this world, just AMAZING!!


London Box Office customer

Less is sometimes more

David Suchet was excellent. Every time he walked on the scene, the play became vivid. There were passages which were unnecessary long. If the play was 15-25 minutes shorter, it would be just fine.


London Box Office customer

A seldom-performed Arthur Miller, brilliantly done

London Box Office customer

Fantastic show , thought provoking

Definitely worth the 6 hour round trip to see! I left the theatre reflecting on desisions I had taken in my own life and the assumptions they may have been based on. So definitely a thought provoking afternoon. The acting was great. Brendon Cole particularly, as his performance was nuanced and held the audience.Adrian Lukis was a little too shouty for me and his character seem less believable as a result. David Suchet was of course fantastic!


London Box Office customer

Exelent acting

London Box Office customer

True gem

London Box Office customer

Poignant

David Suchet was excellent - each time he came on, the level of acting was raised!


London Box Office customer

Stunning production , magnificent actors , an incredible evening that you can’t stop thinking about long after! There are times when you just can’t breathe! David Suchet is sublime and can play any role! The public are so lucky to see such fine acting by this brilliant Quartet! Run, don’t walk before these precious weeks are over! Bravo to one and all!

Wonderful acting

London Box Office customer

Davis Suchet is excellent. As a whole it is not Arthur Millers best work but it caused quite a bit of after show discussion which is always a good sign!


London Box Office customer

An absorbing play

Very interesting play with the relationships between the 4 actors evolving as the play progressed


London Box Office customer

David Suchet on the stage. He is amazing!
