Written in 1947, just after the end of World War 2, this play brought Miller his first major success.
The setting is the unremarkable backyard in a comfortable ordinary American suburb. Joe Keller, now retired from running his factory, which had been given over to the production of airplane parts during the war, is an especially popular figure and the Keller’s home is a drop-in for all the neighbours. But Joe harbours a half-forgotten secret and his son Chris cannot forgive but must expose the wartime profiteering.
A searing drama of conflict between father and son.
