The Kellers are a family with a heavy secret, one that threatens to unravel them entirely. Set shortly after the end of World War II in a small American suburban paradise, All My Sons tells their story as a father tries to control his legacy, a mother flees her grief over losing a child, and a son courts an unwitting spectre of the war who sets this gripping plot about love, grief, and responsibility in motion.

Considered an American classic written by one of history’s greatest playwrights, All My Sons’ story set in 1947 is still loaded with themes that resonate today, including war profiteering, a global rather than individual concept of morality, and the idea of reckoning with and reconciling your history’s darkest details. Most relevant, however, is the impact that all these concepts have on what matters most to all of us; our families, real or found. All of the characters in All My Sons fight tooth and nail to explore, develop, and protect their most meaningful relationships, and it is their desperation to succeed at this that drives the plot and makes it hit home today.
