THE LAST YANKEE – Edinburgh

In Plays, Regional theatre, Reviews, Scotland by Thom DibdinLeave a Comment

Rapture Theatre’s touring production of Arthur Miller’s The Last Yankee has an emotional depth and psychological realism that help the production to overcome occasional false steps.

This is one of Miller’s final plays and seems largely unconcerned with niceties of plot, instead focusing on the interplay of character. Themes of mental health, human relationships, success and failure and the dying of the American Dream are elegantly explored in what is a delicately limpid chamber piece.
