Royal Exchange Theatre Manchester
A Royal Exchange Theatre and Talawa Theatre Company co-production
Michael Buffong returns to direct Arthur Miller’s landmark play
ALL MY SONS is a searing investigation of honesty, guilt and the corrupting power of greed. The play was Arthur Miller’s first success, establishing him as a leading voice in theatre.
It is 1947. Joe and Kate Keller, an all-American couple, have the ghosts of World War II living in their own backyard.
Joe is a successful, self-made businessman, a loving family man and a pillar of the community. He is a partner in a machine shop building fighter plane parts. One thing overshadows Joe and Kate’s happiness – their son is missing in action, presumed dead by all but his mother…
This collaboration features two of the country’s most distinguished actors, Don Warrington MBE (RISING DAMP and DEATH IN PARADISE) and Doña Croll (best known as Vera Corrigan in DOCTORS). Michael Buffong is Artistic Director ofTalawa Theatre Company. His previous credits for the Royal Exchange include the multi award-winning A RAISIN IN THE SUN and PRIVATE LIVES.
Talawa Theatre Company will be in residency at the Royal Exchange during ALL MY SONS offering a series of master-classes and workshops. More information and details of how to get involved will be posted here soon.
‘The Exchange has always been a magical space for me. It seems a place of endless possibilities; it has the ability to be vast and in a moment to become incredibly intimate.” Michael Buffong
