“All My Sons” – secrets and repercussions – at Heidelberg Theatre. 7 – 22 July, 2017

Joe Keller (George Werther) attempts to convince his surviving veteran son, Chris (Liam Gillespie) that he did it for his family’s sake. Kate Keller (Julie Arnold) – background – knows the truth.

Arthur Miller’s “All My Sons” – by arrangement with Hal Leonard Australia – is directed by Chris McLean for the Heidelberg Theatre season.

All My Sons explores the repercussions on a close-knit household after personal gain is put ahead of social duty. Some years back Joe Keller chose the prosperity of his family over the well-being of others. Now we join the family on the day of reckoning.

This is Arthur Miller at his finest. Winner of the Drama Critics Award for Best New Play in 1947, All My Sons established the playwright as a leading voice in 20th century theatre.

NOTE: This play includes events that some audience members may find confronting. For further details you can enquire at htc@htc.org.au

“Pride and Prejudice” – truly timeless – at Heidelberg Theatre.…28 Apr – 13 May, 2017

Pride-Prejudice_HiRes2

Mr Darcy (James Antonas) tries to explain to Miss Elizabeth Bennet (Aimee Sanderson), the reasons for his interference in the marriage plans of Elizabeth’s sister, Jane.

Jane Austen’s “Pride and Prejudice” is adapted for stage by Simon Reade, and directed by Tim Scott for HTC.

Handsome Mr Darcy meets engaging Elizabeth Bennet and is as much drawn by her charms as he is put off by her family’s lower social standing.

Jane Austen’s much-loved classic love story is brought vividly to life in this new stage adaptation, where dances abound, marriages are sought and made, and pride is finally overcome. Pride and Prejudice, the play, is replete with all the familiar, comical characters of the novel. It boasts period costumes, music and witty dialogue, where the deserving are rewarded, the self-serving are put in their place and love is triumphant.
