Drama explores family relationships, morality, loss of innocence

Posted

Shakespeare ‘70 presents Arthur Miller’s powerful tale of morality, guilt, responsibility, and irrevocable loss of innocence during World War II, “All My Sons,” at the Kelsey Theatre on Mercer County Community College’s (MCCC) West Windsor Campus, 1200 Old Trenton Road, through Feb. 4.

The Keller family lives in a middle class, God-fearing neighborhood, where residents start and end their lives on the same block; where grape juice and gossip are never more than a few steps away; where power is gained through business and poker games; and where secrets divulged are over freshly baked apple pie.

Joe Keller is a successful, self-made man, who has spent his entire life in the single-minded pursuit of wealth for the sake of his family, and who loses sight of his morality – and pays the price.

“All My Sons” is based on a true story and is considered Arthur Miller’s first significant play.

The cast features Peter Shea Kierst (Furlong) as Joe Keller; Janet Quartarone (Flemington, N.J.) as Kate Keller; Raymond Fallon (Lawrenceville, N.J.) as Chris Keller; Kate Augustin (Yardley) as Ann Dever; Jake Burbage (Delran, N.J.) as George Dever; J. Ryan Harmer (Robbinsville, N.J.) as Jim Bayliss; Hannah Rapaport-Stein (Princeton Junction, N.J.) as Sue Bayliss; Jacob Turchi (Old Bridge, N.J.) as Frank Lubey; Maggie J. Gronenthal (Lawrenceville) as Lydia Lubey; and Forest Li (Princeton Junction) as Bert.
