Sierra Repertory Theater Presents “All My Sons” Aug. 29- Sept. 21 in the East Sonora Theater, 13891 Mono Way Sonora. The Arthur Miller play was the winner of the Drama Critics’ Award for Best New Play in 1947 and multiple Tony Award-winner, “All My Sons“ established Arthur Miller as a leading voice in the American theater. In this classic American drama, Joe Keller and Steve Deever — partners in a manufacturing plant during World War II — turned out defective airplane parts, causing the deaths of many men. They were sent to prison but Keller was exonerated and went on to have a successful business. In a work of tremendous power, a love affair between Keller’s son and Deever’s daughter, the bitterness of George Deever, and the reaction of a son to his father’s guilt escalate toward a climax of electrifying intensity. “…the quality of its writing hasn’t tarnished, its moral issues haven’t aged, and its tragic events can still pack a wallop.” Prices are $26 to $32 general admission, child, group, senior and student discounts available. The box office is 209-532-3120.
