Rounding out the cast are Marian Zennie and Matthew Valeriane as Lydia and Frank. Elijah Brattain plays a local neighborhood boy.
Based on a true incident that playwright Miller read about, "All My Sons" is about taking responsibility for one's own actions. Many secrets are revealed as the characters discuss their tangled pasts and try to work out a future for themselves.
"All My Sons" won the Tony Award for Best Play of 1947 and many other theatrical awards. Miller later wrote such classic dramas as "Death of a Salesman" and "The Crucible."
All of the action of the play takes place in the backyard of the Keller home in August 1947. Linda Gjesvold designed the outdoor setting. Rossok and Nancy Zennie worked on the costumes.
The lighting design is by Earles and Tyson Myrick, who is also the assistant director and stage manager for "All My Sons." Jim Green will operate the soundboard, and Jessica Watson will run the lights. Assisting Myrick backstage is Alix Green.
The season continues in August with "Singin' in the Rain."
