“How lovely to be making my first appearance at the Queen’s Theatre. Miller’s description of Kate, in All My Sons, as ‘.., a woman with an overwhelming capacity for love’, is a hook in itself. Then to learn how events have, and do, affect her is a compelling and fascinating prospect to play. I am delighted and excited to be making her my own” said Eve Matheson.

They will be joined by David Bonnick Jr (Whitney Houston and Bobby BrownAddicted to Love, Channel 5) Oliver Hembrough (Around the World in 80 Days, BBC One), Nathan Ives-Moiba (A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Octagon Theatre), Natasha Lewis (The Boy in the Dress, Royal Shakespeare Company), Tilly-Mae Millbrook (A Christmas Carol, The Watermill), Graeme Rooney (The Play That Goes Wrong, Duchess Theatre, UK Tour), and Kibong Tanji (The Sun, The Moon and The Stars, Theatre Royal, Stratford East).

This compelling masterpiece, based on a true story, established Arthur Miller (Death of a Salesman, The Crucible) as one of the greatest playwrights of the 20th century. A classic that’s been performed in the West End an‎d on Broadway by a galaxy of stars including Annette Bening, Jenna Coleman, Bill Pullman, David Suchet and Julie Walters.

All My Sons will be directed by Douglas Rintoul (Macbeth, Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch), designed by Amy Jane Cook (Jelly Fish, The National Theatre), with lighting design by Stephen Pemble (Neville’s Island, Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch), sound design by Helen Atkinson (Grief is the Thing with Feathers, The Barbican, St Ann’s Warehouse, US), accent coaching by Joel Trill (A Taste of Honey, Trafalgar Studios), and intimacy and fight direction by Haruka Kuroda (The Last Temptation of Boris Johnson, Park Theatre).

Director Douglas Rintoul said “We are delighted to kick off the year as we mean to go on, bringing world-class drama to the stage at Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch.

“This will be the first production of Miller’s masterpiece at the Theatre since 1959. It holds a particular significance as we move into 2022. Miller gives us a beautiful family drama full of ordinary people that we recognise and fall in love with. He grabs our hearts and then unashamedly forces us to experience the cost of their individualism, and its impact on their morality, interpersonal relationships and more importantly their wider world.  It hits us in the guts. Against our contemporary context of division, post-truth, climate change and the pandemic, this play speaks to us more than ever, asking us to look at the values and beliefs we hold about our own lives and the world around us”.

Miller’s moving and powerful landmark drama will run at Queen’s Theatre Hornchurch from 10 February 2022 until5 March 2022, before playing at the New Wolsey Theatre Ipswich 8 – 12 March 2022. Tickets are now on sale.
