Two-time Academy Award winner Sally Field and Bill Pullman are to star in a new production of Arthur Miller’s All My Sons at the Old Vic.
Directed by Jeremy Herrin, the piece is a co-production between Headlong and the Old Vic, and opens at the venue next spring.
Pullman and Field play Joe and Kate Keller, husband and wife who despite loss and hardship have achieved great success in life. With the return of a figure from the past, long buried truths are forced to the surface and the price of their American dream is laid bare.
Written in 1947, the play launched Miller’s career and established him as America’s social critic. A devastating indictment of war-profiteering, the play exposes the price paid by self-interest and greed fostered by capitalism.
Sally Field’s was last on stage in a 2017 Broadway production of The Glass Menagerie. Her long and varied career includes TV series Brothers and Sister, Gidget,The Flying Nun and films Soapdish, Forrest Gump, Steel Magnolias, Lincoln and The Amazing Spiderman.
Best known for Independence Day, Pullman’s stage credits include The Goat, or Who is Sylvia? on Broadway and of an off-Broadway production Peter and Jerry, both by Edward Albee. He also appeared in the Broadway production of David Mamet’s Oleanna, co-starring Julia Stiles.
Further casting and dates for the production are to be announced.
