The Potomac Playmakers announce auditions for the next show of the 2017–2018
Season, Arthur Miller’s drama "All My Sons." In the show, Joe Keller and
Steve Deever ran a machine shop during World War, II, which made airplane
parts. Deever was sent to prison because the firm turned out defective parts,
causing the deaths of many men. Keller went free and made a lot of money. The
twin shadows of this catastrophe and the fact that the young Keller son was
reported missing during the war dominate the action. The love affair of Chris
Keller and Ann Deever, the bitterness of George Deever returned from the war
to find his father in prison and his father's partner free, are all set in a
structure of almost unbearable power. The climax showing the reaction of a
son to his guilty father is fitting conclusion to a play electrifying in its
intensity. All My Sons is a past winner of the New York Drama Critics Circle
Award for Best Play.
Produced under special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., All My
Sons will be directed by Cathy James. The cast calls for six men and four
women. Auditions for All My Sons will be held on September 25 & 26, 2017 at
The Women’s Club, located at 31 S. Prospect Street, Hagerstown, Maryland
21740. Start time for auditions will be 7:00 pm on both nights. There will
be cold readings from the script. Show dates for All My Sons will be
November 10, 11, 17, 18 & 19, 2017, with possible additional performances
