Join Midland Players in post war America, for Arthur Miller’s classic All My Sons, a tragedy of the common man. 27th February – 2nd March 2019, directed by Ruth Deller.
Joe Keller, a successful businessman, lives comfortably with his wife, Kate, and son, Chris, in suburban America. Their only sadness is the loss of their other son, Larry, a pilot who went missing in World War II. Three years later, Kate still clings to the hope that Larry is alive, but his childhood sweetheart, Ann, returns to the town to marry Chris and start a new life. Larry’s loss is not the only part of the family’s past they can’t put behind them. Not everybody’s forgotten the court case that put Joe’s partner in jail, or the cracked engine heads his factory produced which caused it and dropped twenty-one pilots out of the sky …
The show must go on
Community theatre always comes with challenges, as people rehearse, learn lines and produce a show around their every day lives. In this show we’ve even had a cast member in a cast! Richard Delroy (George) badly broke his leg in an accident, but this didn’t stop him rehearsing even though for a while, the only way he could do it was via Skype! The show, as always, must go on… but we’re all feeling a little wary of the traditional ‘break a leg’ greeting this time round!
Our cast also includes Sheffield Councillor Joe Otten, and former Stocksbridge Mayor Alison Brelsford.
All My Sons runs Wednesday 27th February to Saturday 2nd March 2019, 7.30pm at the University of Sheffield Drama Studio, Glossop Road. Tickets £10 (£8 concessions) available from www.midlandplayers.co.uk, via email@example.com or on 07928 276 383
