FARNWORTH Little Theatre will bring the post-WWII drama All My Sons to life this weekend after a two-year delay.

The three-act play was American playwright, Arthur Miller’s, first Broadway success in 1974, before he went on to become world-renowned for his gripping tension, flawed characters and emotional realism.

The play is based on an actual series of events, which will take you on a journey to the immediate world of Midwest America in the late 1940s, where life for the characters becomes more like an American nightmare than the American dream.

Director Michael Haworth said: “We had originally planned to perform this production in 2020, and I can say for anyone who has been waiting since then, that it will definitely be worth the wait.

 “It’s been a real privilege to work with this cast, and the crew at Farnworth Little Theatre.

“They have been so committed and fearless in throwing themselves into the painful moments in this play.

“I’d really recommend coming along - a great night out guaranteed for anyone who is or isn’t familiar with Arthur Miller’s great work.”

Theatre production entertains, amuses and moves

The story focusses on the main characters, Kate and Joe Keller, who are a married couple.

Kate believes that their missing and presumed-dead son Larry, is still alive.

Playing Joe Keller is John O’Connell who is a familiar face on stage at Farnworth Little Theatre, and theatres across Greater Manchester, most notably his one-man (and woman) performance of A Different Way Home.

Playing opposite John is Alison Bowers who makes her first performance at the theatre as Kate. James Haslam who was recently seen at the theatre in One Man Two Guvnors, and Early One Morning, plays their loyal and loving son, Chris Keller, whom Joe is priming to take over the business.

The production at Farnworth Little Theatre will run from Saturday, May 14 to Saturday, May 21, with an afternoon show at 2pm on May 21.

Tickets are £10 full price / £8 concession, and are available online at www.farnworthlittletheatre.co.uk or by calling the Box Office line on 0845 643 0808.
