The Wisbech Players take to the stage at the Angles Theatre later this month with a production of Arthur Miller’s ‘All My Sons’.

This powerful drama was Miller’s first commercially successful stage play, written at the end of the Second World War.

Based on a true story, set in 1946, it concerns issues of betrayal, guilt, denial and retribution.

Joe Keller has made his fortune from the manufacture of aircraft parts.

Under pressure from the authorities he knowingly allowed defective parts to be shipped out from his factory, with disastrous consequences.

He subsequently stood by while his partner and neighbour, Steve, took the rap. The whole family has dealt with their suspicions in various ways, and Joe is still idolised by his sole surviving son, Chris.

He now wants to marry his dead brother’s girlfriend Ann, the daughter of Steve – something which his mother cannot accept.

Tensions build but everything comes to a head when George, Steve’s son, pays a visit.

The cast of 10 includes some new faces to the Players and a father and son team.

Some of the issues raised by the play caused Miller to be summoned before the House Unamerican Activities Committee, an experience which led him to write ‘The Crucible’.

The play is being performed at the Angles Theatre in Wisbech from Tuesday April 19 to Saturday April 23 at 7.30pm.
