The Price

By Arthur Miller
Directed by Tom Williams
10 - 17 May 2014 at 7:45pm
No performance Sunday
Matinee May 17th at 2.30pm


A play about family dynamics, the price of furniture and the price of one's decisions

Two brother who have not spoken to each other for 16 years come together for the first time to clear the contents of the family home following the death of their late father. Victor, a New York cop, sacrificed his college education to look after their ailing father while Walter pursued a career as a surgeon. Between them is the shrewd figure of Solomon, a 90-year old Russian-Jewish antique dealer, whose job is to broker custody of the antiquated rowing oar and a broken harp.

"...Arthur Miller's 1968 play is scintillating, powerful and moving..." The Times
