‘All My Sons’ reaches highest levels

By Kathie Isaac-Luke

For The Union Democrat

When Sara Jones, managing director of Sierra Repertory Theatre, introduced the company’s production of Arthur Miller’s “All My Sons” at Friday night’s opening, she remarked that it is sometimes difficult to get audiences to turn out for a drama. 

But this play, which opened to a less than capacity audience, is not just any drama. This is a play of great power and depth written by one of America’s most important playwrights. And, it is performed by a company who treats the material with deserved reverence and renders every detail with precision.

‘All My Sons’ marks Miller debut at SRT

It was written during World War II, but Arthur Miller’s play “All My Sons” continues to resonate with audiences today. Running Friday through Sept. 21 at Sierra Repertory Theatre’s East Sonora stage, the drama’s themes of corruption, materialism and getting ahead at the expense of others are still relevant, said Scott Viets, artistic director at Sierra Repertory Theatre.
