Broadcast live from The Old Vic in London, Academy Award-winner Sally Field (Steel MagnoliasBrothers & Sisters) and Bill Pullman (The SinnerIndependence Day) star in Arthur Miller’s blistering drama All My Sons.

America, 1947. Despite hard choices and even harder knocks, Joe and Kate Keller are a success story. They have built a home, raised two sons and established a thriving business.

But nothing lasts forever and their contented lives, already shadowed by the loss of their eldest boy to war, are about to shatter. With the return of a figure from the past, long buried truths are forced to the surface and the price of their American dream is laid bare.

Jeremy Herrin (NT Live: This House) directs the cast, which also includes Jenna Coleman (Victoria), and Colin Morgan (Merlin) alongside Bessie Carter, Oliver Johnstone, Kayla Meikle and Sule Rimi.

Run-time: 2 hours 45 minutes

Adult $15 | Senior $10 | Student $8 | All fees included

REMINDER: Lecture portion is FREE and open to the public.
