Not just a run of the Miller pro­duc­tion

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Comedy -

ALL My Sons was the play that first es­tab­lished Arthur Miller’s voice in Amer­i­can theatre and as a play­wright worth not­ing.

Full of post-war angst and guilt, the fam­ily drama ex­am­ines the ‘Amer­i­can Dream’ and the ram­i­fi­ca­tions of when it was shat­tered.

Third-year WAAPA act­ing stu­dents will present a sea­son of the pro­duc­tion un­der the di­rec­tion of Mel­bourne-based Tom Healey.

“More than 60 years af­ter it was minted, Miller’s theatre, bru­tal and un­com­pro­mis­ing, speaks with ut­ter orig­i­nal­ity, com­pas­sion and truth,” Healey said.

“His plays are light­ning rods which connect us to the deep power and po­ten­tial of be­ing alive.”

All My Sons is at Round­house Theatre, WAAPA, Mt Law­ley, from May 1 to 7.

Tick­ets and more in­for­ma­tion are avail­able at www.waapa.ecu.edu.au.
