Sally Field and Bill Pullman to star in All My Sons at Old Vic
A new production of Arthur Miller’s All My Sons is set to run at The Old Vic next spring, and will star renowned actors Sally Field and Bill Pullman.
Directed by Jeremy Herrin, the play will be co-produced by the Old Vic and Headlong, and will open at the theatre in spring 2019, with dates and further casting to be announced.
Miller’s play is set in 1940s America and follows Joe Keller, who was charged with shipping damaged aircraft parts from his factory during the Second World War, and Kate Keller, who lives in denial of Joe’s crime while also struggling with the fact her son Larry has been missing-in-action for three years. All My Sons is based on the true story that army inspection officers approved defective aircraft engines to be used in the early 40s.
Pullman will play Joe Keller. His biggest screen role came in 1996 when he played President Whitmore in the film Independence Day, but his stage credits include the Broadway premiere of The Goat, or Who Is Sylvia?, and David Mamet’s Oleanna.
Kate Keller will be played by Field, who also appeared in The Goat, or Who Is Sylvia on Broadway, appearing in the same production as Pullman as part of the show’s first cast change. She also starred in a revival of The Glass Menagerie, for which earned a Tony Award nomination for Best Actress in 2004.
The last major production of All My Sons in the West End was in 2010, when David Suchet and Zoe Wanamaker starred at the Apollo Theatre. Click here to read our five-star review of that production.
