One of Arthur Miller’s first plays written for the stage, All My Sons centres on the Keller family, a Midwestern family in America that seem to be a success story from first glance. A self-made businessman, Joe Keller lives with the grief his son Larry went missing while fighting for America in World War Two. It’s a hard-hitting tale where living the American Dream can be the biggest price to pay for success. Last performed in the West End in 2010, starring David Suchet and Zoë Wanamaker as Joe and Kate Keller, All My Sons will open at the Old Vic Theatre in April 2019, as a co-production between the Old Vic and Headlong.
All My Sons will be directed by Jeremy Herrin, the artistic director of Headlong Theatre. Recently, he directed Labour of Love at the Noël Coward Theatre, as well as directing People, Places and Things by Duncan Macmillan, which was nominated for best new play at the 2016 Olivier Awards.

Set in August 1947 in the American Midwest, Frank arrives at the door of Joe and Kate Keller, discussing the loss of the Keller’s missing son, Larry. Kate believes Larry is coming back whereas their other son Chris thinks otherwise. Wanting to marry Larry’s previous girlfriend Ann, Chris lives in painful memories of his time at war, leading others to recall their experiences in battle. In a story where deceit carries a heavy burden on everyone, secrets are shared and truths are told, even if the price of the American Dream is laid out on the table. All My Sons is based on a true story which Arthur Miller read in a newspaper in Ohio during the early 1940’s.
