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.
Love London Love Culture rounds up the reviews for Jeremy Herrin’s production of All My Sons starring Bill Pullman and Sally Field.
The hallmark of a ‘great play’ is its universality, and historically Arthur Miller’s 1947 All My Sons is a ‘great play’ but it’s debatable whether, in trying to adhere that greatness to contemporary realities, Jeremy Herrin’s is a great production.
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.
It is almost uncanny how an Arthur Miller play like All My Sons, treated respectfully, can in the most wrenchingly extreme story still catch the common rhythms and tides of family and neighbourhood.
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.
