By Arthur Miller

Set in post-World War II, Arthur Miller’s landmark drama examines the relationships between fathers and sons and the price of living the American Dream. An explosive secret threatens to tear the family apart in this powerful play about the conflict between business ethics and taking responsibility for one’s actions.
Winner of the first Tony Award and the New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award for Best New Play, All My Sons established Miller as a leading voice in the American theatre. Based on a true story.

About The Spark
Written and Directed by Kelsey Leigh Ervi
As storytellers, our hardest task is allowing ourselves the imagination to see that what is right in front of us, isn’t all there is. The Spark is an exploration of that concept using light, puppetry and the mind of a child. Imagination can take on many different forms in storytelling. But what happens when imagination is lost? Can it be rediscovered? Through bedtime stories and the hardships of growing up, Emma, our young protagonist, goes on a journey through make-believe and reality, all in search of the spark of light she once knew. The Spark will receive its world premiere on March 5, 2015 at the Festival.
