Talawa’s acclaimed production of Arthur Miller’s All My Sons, directed by Artistic Director Michael Buffong will appear at Malvern Theatres from the 21st to 25th April, in the centenary year of Miller’s birth.
It’s 1947, and all-American couple Joe and Kate Keller are living with the ghosts of World War II. Joe is successful, a self-made businessman, loving family-man and pillar of the community. He is a partner in a machine shop building fighter plane parts. Joe and Kate’s happiness is clouded by one thing – their son is missing in action, presumed dead by all but his mother.
The production played to full houses when it opened in a co-production with Royal Exchange Theatre, Manchester last year. Ray Shell and Doña Croll lead the cast in this searing investigation of honesty, guilt and the corrupting power of greed.
Talawa Theatre Company is the UK’s primary Black-led theatre company. Led by Artistic Director Michael Buffong, Talawa aims to create work informed by the wealth and diversity of the Black British experience, invest in talent, build audiences and inspire dialogue with and within communities across Britain.
The full cast includes Kemi Bo-Jacobs, Doña Croll, Andrea Davy, Ashley Gerlach, Bethan Mary James, Leemore Marrett Jr, Ray Shell and Chinna Wodu. The production is designed by Ellen Cairns, with lighting by Johanna Town and sound by Emma Laxton. The All My Sons tour is supported by Arts Council England.
