Jeff Rollins and Kathy Lively perform in a scene from “All My Sons,” which opens at the SCV Space tonight.

 


The SETGroup, under the leadership of Artistic Director Rod Oden, will present Arthur Miller's landmark American drama, "All My Sons." Directed by Jeff Johnson, "All My Sons" stars local favorites Jeff Rollins, Kathy Lively, Jason Endicott, Bridget Pugliese, Hannah Lively, George Cummings, David Wisehart, Beth Ann Sweezer and Couso Morpheous, and runs from Nov. 5 through Nov. 14. For tickets call (661) 263-3733 or purchase online at www.setheatre.com.

With today's economic turmoil and the American dream in question, "All My Sons" surprises with a contemporary relevance for American audiences. World War II has ended as Joe Keller, an airplane parts manufacturer, is caught in a personal battle between individual responsibility and business success that could threaten his search for the American dream.

The play was Arthur Miller's first Broadway success. "All My Sons" established Miller as an important American playwright and his next three plays - "Death of a Salesman," "The Crucible," and "A View from the Bridge" - cemented his position as heir to Eugene O'Neill as one of America's greatest playwrights.

"All My Sons" contains all the elements of classical tragedy. Miller was one of the first modern playwrights to transfer tragedy from royal courts into the homes and backyards of common working people, to show that extraordinary emotions and actions are experienced by recognizable ordinary people, i.e. suburbanites, our neighbors, our families. This play resonates for us all.

Tickets are $15 or $10 for students/seniors with ID. Seating is limited and it is recommended to order early.
SETGroup theatre is housed at the SCV Space, 27600 Bouquet Canyon Road, Saugus, CA 91350.
