The Price

By Arthur Miller
Directed by Seema Sueko

October 6 — November 5, 2017
Arlene and Robert Kogod Cradle

Everything has a price — even our dreams. Victor Franz has returned home to settle his late father’s estate. In an attic overflowing with memories and furniture he meets the enigmatic Gregory Solomon (Hal Linden), a professional appraiser committed to turning a profit off Victor’s past. But before a bargain can be struck, an estranged brother enters the scene to reframe Victor’s memories and force them both to reconsider the true cost of personal sacrifices. One of the most personal plays by an American theater giant, Arthur Miller’s The Price is “as relevant today as the day it was written.” (The Hollywood Reporter)
