All My Sons
All my sons, the play written and staged in 1947, is the one that propelled Arthur Miller to the public eye of the American audience and critics and the one that brought him his first Tony Award. The story, which follows the rules of the Greek tragedy of time, space and action, isinspired from a real story that the playwright found in a newspaper. The action takes place inAmerica, immediately after the Second World War, in a family that became rich by taking advantage of the arising opportunities. In the Kellers’ home, the drama runs deep. Three and a half years later, the decisions taken during the war have tragic consequences for the entire family.
All my sonsreturns to the National Theatre over half a century after its first staging in Romania, in 1948. The team back then was made up of Aura Buzescu in Katty Keller’s role and Liviu Ciulei, who signed the scenography of the performance. All My Sons, a staging which is part of the NTB’s project Universal Theatre Today, is a recovery of an important piece of American dramaturgy, almost unknown to the Romanian audience, and it will certainly be a successful performance.
