GRADS presents by arrangement with Hal Leonard Australia Pty. Ltd., on behalf of Dramatists Play Services, Inc. New York
All My Sons directed by Barry Park
A compelling family drama about betrayal, guilt and greed - and a terrible secret revealed
The GRADS production of ALL MY SONS by Arthur Miller will open at the Dolphin Theatre on 4th November, 2011.
The production will be directed by Barry Park, director of last year’s highly successful GRADS production of CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF.
Lucy Eyre will play Kate Keller, while Noel O’Neill will play the husband, Joe Keller. David Gregory will play their son, Chris and Tiana Morgan, his girlfriend, Ann. Also in the cast are Mehdi Golbahar as George, Neil Cartmell as Dr Jim Bayliss, Yvette Wall as Sue Bayliss, Paul Montague as Frank Lubey, Hannah Siemer as Lydia Lubey and Matti Helm as Bert.
All My Sons (1947) the first great success of Arthur Miller’s supremely influential career, is a profound and thought-provoking modern classic about personal responsibility.
Joe Keller strives for the American Dream, but two years after the end of World War Two, his family still suffers from its aftershocks. When Chris, the elder son, announces his plan to marry the fiancée of his still missing-in-action brother, his mother must confront her denial; Chris, his father’s fallibility, and Joe, his true responsibilities.
A shameful family secret is uncovered – with terrible consequences.
All My Sons has enjoyed recent exceptional revivals, demonstrating that it is not only a timeless story of self-delusion, but also a searing drama of morality and conscience that has as much to say now as it did in 1947.

Some early shots of the rehearsals for All My Sons down at the Masonic Hall in Nedlands on Sunday. The majority of the cast were there so it was a perfect time to go down and take some photos. It was a great opportunity to see the “beginnings” of what will be a great production! I will be going back to next Sunday to get a few more shots of some of the missing cast.
Second trip back to the Masonic Hall to finish the second round of early rehearsal shots, this time around capturing the missing cast from the first shoot!
Meet our lovely costumiers, Jenny Prosser, Jadwiga Poulson and Dinah Zaikos fitting some of the cast from All My Sons. (Tiana Morgan, Yvette Wall and Matti Helm)
