The Price
by Arthur Miller
As two estranged brothers return to their childhood home for the first time in three decades, an old attic filled with memories becomes a staging ground for conflict between past and present, success and failure, and obligation and choice. In what is perhaps the most personal play written by Arthur Miller, the consummate voice of the American experience, this riveting story about family invites us to examine how to make peace with the past in order to move toward a brighter future.

Evening shows begin at 8:00 PM
Matinees begin at 3:00 PM.

The set itself was beautiful, and I absolutely felt like I was peering into an old attic that held many memories for these two brothers. Kristen Martino, the scenic designer of THE PRICE, did an excellent job with this production. (more…)
