Full cast announced for Rose Theatre's All My Sons
Full casting announced for Miller revival.
The Rose Theatre in Kingston have announced full casting for their upcoming revival of Arthur Miller's All My Sons which opens on 2 November, with previews from 28 October, and runs until 19 November 2016.
David Horovitch leads the cast as Joe Keller alongside Penny Downie as Kate Keller with Alex Waldmann (Chris Keller), Grace Carter (Lydia Lubey), Edward Harrison (George Deever), William Meredith (Frank Lubey), Alison Pargeter (Sue Bayliss), David Partridge (Jim Bayliss) and Francesca Zoutewelle (Ann Deever).
Directed by Michael Rudman the production features set and costume design by Michael Taylor, lighting design by David Howe, sound design by Martin Hodgson and original music by Matthew Scott.
"Joe Keller is a thriving businessman who, during World War II, knowingly supplied the American airforce with defective engines, leading to the deaths of innocent pilots. To avoid the blame, he let his business partner take the fall, but during a sunny afternoon Joe is confronted by the consequences of his moral actions as a visitor arrives to reveal a secret that will rip his family apart."
Miller's 1947 play is described as a "compelling story of love, guilt and the corrupting power of greed". It is one of his most performed plays and has recently enjoyed London revivals in the West End at the Regent's Park Open Air Theatre.
