What is All My Sons about?
Set in America in 1947, All My Sons is the story of a couple who despite hard decisions and tough setbacks in life are outwardly successful. They have a family, a comfortable home and run a successful business.
Their lives, however, are over-shadowed by the loss of their eldest son, missing in action for several years and the suspicion of war -profiteering. The return of a figure from their past brings long-buried truths to the surface and the price of their American dream is laid bare.
A devastating indictment of war-profiteering, the play exposes the price paid by self-interest and greed fostered by capitalism.
All My Sons will run from 15 April 2019 until 8 June 2019 at the Old Vic Theatre, London
