WHAT PRICE MUST ONE PAY ... FOR CHOICES MADE IN LIFE?
Written in 1967 by the man considered to be one of the pre-eminent dramatists of the twentieth century, this play examines the relationship of two estranged brothers who get together for the first time in years to address the task of disposing of their late parents' property. This beautifully written piece addresses the issues of coming to terms with choices made in the conduct of one's life, and the price one pays for making them.
Arthur Miller (1915-2005) enjoyed a career of more than seven decades as a widely respected essayist and playwright. His most recognized earlier plays are Death of a Salesman (1949), The Crucible (1953), A View from the Bridge (1955) and After the Fall (1962); notable later works include The Ride Down Mount Morgan (1991) and Broken Glass (1994). The Price, produced in 1968, ran for 429 performances on Broadway, and over the years has seen numerous revivals in this country and abroad. Taken by its message of reconciliation and healing, The New York Times called it "...one of the most engrossing and entertaining plays that Miller has ever written. It is superbly, even flamboyantly theatrical...".
