Seneca Community Players presents Arthur Miller's “All My Sons,” at the Delavan Theatre on the New York Chiropractic College campus in Seneca Falls. Often hailed as Miller's best work, the American classic will be directed by Karl Nies, April 30 through May 2.
Set in the Midwest a few years after WWII, “All My Sons” explores the electrifying conflicts and passions aroused when a family discovers that the eldest son, lost in the war, may have been a victim of his father's wartime profiteering. John King portrays the corrupt father, Joe Keller, who ran an airplane engine parts business and knowingly shipped out defective product. Susan Stewart Sinicropi plays his steadfast wife, Kate Keller. Patrick Fegley plays their younger son, Chris Keller, who falls in love with his missing brother's fiancé, played by Laura Feligno.
Also in the cast are Kevin Schoonover as George Deever; Steve Mitchell as Dr. Jim Bayliss; Terri Kalloch as Sue Bayliss; Stephen Brown as Frank Lubey; Erin Winston as Lydia Lubey; and Michael Sigl as Bert.
Produced locally by Christine Moulton, “All My Sons” features technical direction by Jeff Winston; lighting design by Aaron Isaacs; hair, make-up and costumes by Kim Brown and Kristi Levis; publicity by Kevin Schoonover; props by Rhonda Jasper; and hospitality by Becky Bly. Additionally Ellie Albro is stage manager and Michele Sigl and Jeb Albro are light and sound board operators.
Winner of the Drama Critics' Award for Best New Play in 1947, “All My Sons” established Arthur Miller as a leading voice in the American theater. “All My Sons” tells the tragic story of a family caught up in a series of conflicts about moral responsibility, the nature of justice, and the facade of the American dream and introduced themes that thread through Miller's work as a whole: the relationships between fathers and sons and the conflict between business and personal ethics.
Performance dates are at 8 p.m. on April 30 and May 1, and at 2 p.m. on Sunday, May 2.
Tickets to “All My Sons” are $8 general admission and $7 for students and senior citizens. They are $2 more at the door. They may be purchased at Area Records and Music in Geneva and WomanMade Products in Seneca Falls or by calling (315) 568-9364.
