“All My Sons” Description
How far will a man go to protect his family and his interests? Joe Keller desperately wants to secure the business he spent so many years constructing, ready to hand it down to his son Chris. Joe’s wife Kate is still waiting for their eldest son Larry to return from war, determined that he is alive and will marry the former girl-next-door, Ann-the daughter of Joe’s former business partner. To complicate this family drama, Chris and Ann are in love and want to get married. “All My Sons” shows a post-war American family in a spiral of lies, greed, love, and loss.

Rehearsals begin Tuesday, March 5, 2019. Performances run from Thursday, April 4 to Saturday, June 1, 2019.
