Opera House to present ‘All My Sons’
The 1891 Fredonia Opera House Performing Arts Center will present a satellite screening of the National Theatre Live’s “All My Sons,” starring Academy Award winner Sally Field and Bill Pullman, on Saturday, Feb. 15, at 1 p.m. The event is part of the Stage on Screen Series at the Opera House.
America, 1947. Despite hard choices and even harder knocks, Joe and Kate Keller are a success story. They have built a home, raised two sons and established a thriving business. But nothing lasts forever; and their contented lives, already shadowed by the loss of their eldest boy to war, are about to shatter. With the return of a figure from the past, long buried truths are forced to the surface and the price of their American dream is laid bare.
Jeremy Herrin directs Arthur Miller’s blistering drama which comes captured live by satellite from London’s Old Vic Theatre. The production runs two hours, 35 minutes with one intermission.
