The Arvada Center Closes the 2017-2018 Black Box Season With Arthur Miller's "All My Sons"

The Arvada Center for the Arts and Humanities finishes the 2017 – 2018 Black Box season with All My Sons directed by Lynne Collins, opening Friday, March 2, 2018. All My Sons, by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Arthur Miller, won a Tony Award for Best Author when it premiered in 1947. Loosely based on true events, it tells the story of a family struggling with their decisions in the aftermath of World War II. The 2017 – 2018 Theatre Season is sponsored by Lutheran Medical Center.

Running in repertory with Sense and Sensibility and The Electric Baby, select performances are Thursday through Saturday at 7:30 p.m., with matinées on Wednesdays at 1:00 p.m. and Sunday at 2:00 p.m., through May 3, 2018.

Winner of the New York Drama Critics' Circle Award, and the first-ever Best Play Tony Award, All My Sons is a powerful American classic that explores the dark side of the American dream, complex family dynamics and a person’s responsibility to the world beyond his own home.  Based on the true story of an Ohio manufacturer who sold faulty parts to the U.S. military during World War II, the play’s central character faces the true cost of his choices and their devastating impact on the family he loves.

All My Sons is presented by members of the Center’s Black Box Repertory Company of actors, directors, technical artists, and designers. Audiences will see the repertory actors throughout the season in a variety of roles.
