All My Sons
This year’s Sixth Form production received rave reviews as our senior dramatists entertained audiences with their production of Arthur Miller’s All My Sons.
Johnnie Clark, Joss Connell and Ethan Delaney-Smith directed ten senior pupils from Hampton and Lady Eleanor Holles School, with an impressive set designed by Will Baker.
All My Sons tells the story of Joe Keller and his family in post-World War II America. A successful factory owner who has established a thriving business and idyllic life, with the ‘perfect’ suburban family. However the Keller’s contented lives gradually unravel as secrets are revealed and their American dream is shattered. Sixth Formers Matt Mundy and Dylan Little produced captivating performances as father and son, Joe and Chris Keller.
Two of the play’s directors, Johnnie and Joss, summed up their experience and praised the cast:
We found it a hugely rewarding experience, creating something so emotionally charged whilst staying true to the play’s naturalism. Being new to directing, we were learning throughout the process, but are extremely proud of the cast’s accomplishment in producing such refined performances.
