Synopsis


One of the author’s most poignant dramas – an inquest into the wounds of family and the nature of human failure. Yet it is also one of his most engrossing and entertaining plays, superbly, even flamboyantly theatrical, where Miller holds the interest with the skill of a born story-teller.

In the attic of a soon-to-be-demolished house, two brothers meet after a 16 year estrangement to dispose of their dead parents’ property. The first is a policeman who sacrificed his career as a scientist to care for his invalid father. The other is an eminent surgeon who walked out on the demands of family to concentrate on medicine and personal success. Their confrontation leads them to examine the events and qualities of their very different lives and the price that each of them has had to pay.

Witnessing their inability to understand the value of each other’s decisions and achievements, is a wise old furniture dealer, Gregory Solomon, whose final response to the whole sad situation is laughter.
