Description

World War II is over and a family, mourning a son missing in action, plants a memorial tree and tries to go on with their lives. A storm blows down the tree and a devastating family secret is uprooted, setting the characters on a terrifying journey towards truth. Based upon a true story, All My Son is a classic drama by one of America's greatest playwrights.

At the heart of All My Sons lies a scathing criticism of the American Dream. After its publication Arthur Miller was called to appear before the House Un-American Activities Committee, where he famously refused to give evidence against others.

A Tony Award Winner for Best Author (1947).

Includes an interview with historian Bill Yenne, author of "The American Aircraft Factory in World War Two," one of his many works that chronicle the history of wartime aviation and manufacturing.

An L.A. Theatre Works full-cast performance featuring:

Julie Harris as Kate Keller

James Farentino as Joe Keller
