"All My Sons," the play that established Arthur Miller as a force to be reckoned with in American theatre, will be presented by Teaneck New Theatre (TNT) on Friday and Saturday, July 29 through August 6 at 8:00 p.m., and Sunday, July 31 and August 7 at 3:00 p.m. Don Eckstein directs the show, which will be performed at the Hackensack Cultural Arts Center, 39 Broadway, Hackensack.
This powerful drama by Miller, the great American playwright who died this year, resonates just as strongly in 2005 as it did when it won the Drama Critics Award for Best New Play of 1947. The play explores the conflict between Joe Keller, a businessman whose company manufactured defective airplane parts during World War II, and his son Chris, who fought in that war. That conflict leads to unforeseen consequences involving members of two families-Kate Keller, the bereft mother who refuses to believe that one of her sons was killed in the war; and Ann and George Deever (the daughter and son of Keller's former partner), who endeavor to come to terms with painful truths. Through their struggle, Miller examines the repercussions on society when profits at any cost prevail over personal ethics. "All My Sons" is a deeply moving play that builds to a shattering climax.
According to director Eckstein, the play is timely not only because August 2005 is the 60th anniversary of the end of World War II, but because the same moral conflicts are with us today. Eckstein says he hopes this production "will seize the spirit and imagination of audiences and send them from the theatre a little more alive than when they came in." Included in the cast are Maywood resident Neil Kahn as self-made businessman
Joe Keller; Jeff Phillips of Hoboken as Chris, Joe's idealistic, loyal son; Carol Campione, a Bogota resident, as Joe's wife Kate, a loving, high-strung woman; and North Haledon's Patt Tanner as Ann Deever, the gentle but strong young woman who's in love with Chris.
Rounding out the players are Robert Raffellini (Ridgefield Park) as Ann's brother George, a war veteran determined to confront the past; Ricardo Pino (Montclair) as Dr. Jim Bayliss, a wry physician; Diane Moran (North Haledon) as Sue, Jim's discontented wife; Darren Robertson (Montclair) as Frank Lubey, the Kellers' friendly neighbor; Rosemary DeFlorio (River Vale) as Frank's wife Lydia, a young woman who enjoys life; and A.J. Lisch (Lodi) as Bert, a little neighborhood boy.
