All My Sons - second Weekend

River City Community Players announces the second weekend for All My Sons by Arthur Miller.

Place your reservation now before the good seats are taken.

One reviewer from last weekend said, "I'm glad I went into the theater not knowing what I was about to see. The play is about big issues: how multiple lives can change because of one decision; how ambition can cloud judgment; how personal pride, loyalty to family, and what one owes to his fellow citizens can collide; how far a person can go to deny the truth in order to maintain a sense of order in life. This play forces one to consider the values of truth, loyalty, and duty. In short, it fulfills one of art's major functions: to instruct.

"Though the play is instructive, it is not preachy; though it is a tragedy, there are moments of comedy. The story is realistic and paced in a way that one learns pieces of the story both believably and at the right time. There is no sudden revelation—the truth arrives in bits and pieces. It would be hard to imagine a more gripping or better told story than this Arthur Miller masterpiece. I'll offer no synopsis to allow those who wish to attend as I did, ready for whatever a fine cast and brilliant playwright could offer."

During World War II Joe Keller and Herbert Deever ran a machine shop that made airplane parts. Deever was sent to prison because the firm turned out defective parts, causing the deaths of many men.

Keller went free and made a lot of money. The love affair of Chris Keller and Ann Deever, the bitterness of George Deever returned from the war to find his father in prison and his father's partner free, are all set in a structure of almost unbearable power.
