All My Sons may not be my favourite Arthur Miller play but The Old Vic’s production of it is undeniably brilliant, especially the heavyweight and stunningly good cast.
All My Sons is a gripping play, a slowly unravelling emotional thriller with masterclass performances.
Some titanic acting performances from Sally Field, Bill Pullman and Colin Morgan in this superb All My Sons at the Old Vic Theatre.
Revival of Arthur Miller’s classic family drama All My Sons is very starry but the result is disappointingly uneven.
With compelling performances from the four leads this production of All My Sons fulfils its promise, a gripping Miller tragedy that concludes with a lasting sense of devastation.
The Old Vic and Headlong Theatre’s production of Arthur Miller’s All My Sons, directed by Jeremy Herrin and starring Sally Field and Bill Pullman with Jenna Coleman and Colin Morgan will be broadcast live from The Old Vic to cinemas around the UK and internationally on 14 May 2019 as part of National Theatre Live.
The shortlist for the 64th Evening Standard Theatre Awards has been unveiled. The winners will be announced on Sunday 18 November at the Theatre Royal, Drury Lane.
Matthew Warchus’ fourth season as artistic director of The Old Vic completes with an Arthur Miller double-bill (featuring Rachel Chavkin’s Old Vic directorial debut), a world premiere by Lucy Prebble and a special One Voice performance.
So there’s a real feeling of anticipation about this revival of his 1980 drama, Translations, a major play which has enjoyed an enormously good international reputation since its first staging at the Guildhall in Derry, Northern Ireland.
Translations, Brian Friel’s account of nationhood as seen through the eyes of those living in a small village is now playing at the National Theatre, starring Colin Morgan and Ciarán Hinds. Here’s what critics have been saying about it…
It is rare to find a show so good-natured and yet ominous and academic, all at the same time. Come for the raucous humour, stay for the dramatic, dirty colonialism and the lesson in the pros and cons of multilingualism. Translations is beautiful and daring, go see it.
As Ireland moves into a new era, Brian Friel’s play remains at the heart of debate – how can a country maintain its essence while embracing the modern world?
Casting has been announced for the new National Theatre season, with highlights include Colin Morgan and Ciarán Hinds in Brian Friel’s Translations.
National Theatre artistic director Rufus Norris announced the flagship institution’s 2018 plans at a press conference held today. Here are details of programming in the three auditoria at the NT’s South Bank home.
This play’s subject is alienation, at work and in the home. (But mainly at work.) In contemporary society, office work seems to symbolize a life of modern drudgery.
Truth be told I hadn’t intended to see Gloria, my own little act of protest at the Hampstead’s continuing gender imbalance – six shows straight on their main stage both written and directed by men. But the delights of An Octoroon introduced me to the writing of Branden Jacobs-Jenkins and he definitely feels like a playwright with a lot to say.
The cast of Vivenne Franzmann’s Bodies has been announced and as it is being directed by the marvellous Jude Christian, it will definitely be one not to miss. The company includes Lorna Brown, Brian Ferguson, Philip Goldacre, Salma Hoque, Justine Mitchell and Hannah Rae.
Hollywood and Broadway icon Stockard Channing will return to the London stage this summer, to star in a new production of Olivier Award winner Alexi Kaye Campbell’s acclaimed drama Apologia, directed by the multi-award winning Jamie Lloyd.
Colin Morgan and Ellie Kendrick will make their Hampstead Theatre debuts in the UK premiere of Branden Jacobs-Jenkins’ Gloria in June.
