Arthur Miller’s play The Price, directed by Tony Award-winning Doug Hughes, is playing at the Gate Theatre this July and August.
Set in 1960’s New York, the four-character play is an exploration of family dynamics and the choices we make in life. The drama features two brothers, Victor Franz (Denis Conway), and Walter Franz (Barry McGovern), who meet after a 16 year estrangement to organise their deceased parents’ property.
Victor is a policeman who sacrificed his education and a career as a scientist to care for their invalid father, while Walter, who arrives late, is a successful surgeon who walked away from the demands of the family to concentrate on his own personal success.
The meeting forces the brothers to examine their very different lives and the price each of them had to pay for the choices they made.
Arthur Miller, was a prominent figure in American theatre. He wrote many successful plays such as All My Sons, Crucible and A View from the Bridge, and his most famous, The Death of a Salesman, won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1949.
