All My Sons…  Arthur Miller’s Tony Award Winning All My Sons first opened in 1947 and was inspired by a story from an Ohio Newspaper on an aircraft factory’s troubled contracts during the war. The entire play takes place over one day in the yard of the Midwestern home of the Keller’s in August 1946. Kate, Joe and Chris Keller’s home is a neighborhood hub, on this day the expected and unexpected return of two former neighbors, Ann and George, stir up the secrets of the past and expose who is family and how we justify the sacrifice we make for family.

If You Are Reading This.   The Hoffman family meets to sell their late mother’s Upper East Side brownstone and divide a houseful and lifetime of memories. Ancient dramas of childhood run smack into the fresh grief of mourning. Confusion about their mother’s death and about each of their roles in her illness and demise threatens to escalate into an all-out war, but instead, becomes a path to deeper intimacy. What does it mean to be in midlife and fear you’ve made all the wrong choices? What does it mean to carry unbearable burdens? What does it mean to trust in everything that family is, but also accept everything it isn’t and can never be…
