The Price by Arthur Miller
The Price is a 1968 play by Arthur Miller. It is about family dynamics, the price of furniture and the price of one’s decisions. The play premiered on Broadway in 1968, and has been revived three times on Broadway. It was nominated for two 1968 Tony Awards.
When the Great Depression cost his family their fortune, Victor Franz gave up his dream of an education to support his father. Three decades later, Victor has returned to his childhood home to sell the remainder of his parents’ estate. His wife, his estranged brother, and the wily furniture dealer hired to appraise their possessions all arrive with their own agendas, forcing Victor to confront a question, long-stifled, about the value of his sacrifice.
One of the most personal plays by the consummate voice of the American everyman, Arthur Miller’s The Price is a riveting story about the struggle to make peace with the past and create hope for the future. Steppenwolf co-founder Terry Kinney (reasons to be pretty) directs.
