What was the world like in 1946? Truman was in the White House, WWII was still a very fresh memory, the Korean War was still four years away. The world had been through turmoil and depression, but lives were slowly getting back to normal.
"All My Sons" finds us in August of 1946, in the back yard of the Keller family. A comfortable family, they nonetheless are recovering from the war as all Americans were in those years. Joining them are neighbors Sue and Jim Bayliss, Frank and Lydia Lubey, and family friends Ann Deever and George Deever.
"All My Sons" was written by Arthur Miller, and was awarded the 1946 Tony Award for Best Authored Play.
Directed by Nathan Miles, with Assistant Director Leigh Melton and Stage Manager Briana Schneider, "All My Sons" features Robert Schumacher, Karen Widman, Evan Witkowski, Jenna Arther, Jesse Miller, Sheldon Gray, Erin Gibbs, Brad Jett, Sandy Goad, and Toby Kirk.
"All My Sons" opens at 8 PM on September 3rd, 2010 at the Playhouse, 1700 North Grimes in Hobbs. Following performances are September 4th, 10th, and 11th (all at 8PM), and a matinee showing on September 5th (at 2 PM).
