Arthur Miller’s All My Sons
Directed by Sade Reuarin
All my sons is an American classic about a family amidst WWII. The father, Joe Keller, owns a factory that manufactures plane parts. During the war, they are contracted by the American government to manufacture for the military. After a bad batch of cylinders is sent out, a number of American pilots lose their lives. As the families of these soldiers are affected, so are the family and their community as they deal with the scandal. The family also has a personal loss – one of their sons never returned from the war. The play is set a couple of years later, after the war has ended, and explores the study of denial, guilt and social responsibility.
Puhi Theatrical Warehouse, 4411 Kikowaena Street, Lihue
