Reviews 2016: All My Sons (Rose Theatre)

Lyn Gardner in The Guardian

There are three excellent reasons to see Michael Rudman’s revival of Arthur Miller’s postwar play about guilt, responsibility and the consequences of greed. One is simply that it is a rollicking good story about family secrets, the unintended consequences of actions and how, in trying to look after our own, we can destroy them and ourselves. The others are the very fine performances from Penny Downie and Alex Waldmann as the mother and son locked in a desperate dance to avoid the truth.

Alan Franks writing for London Theatre 1 said: “Also outstanding are Alex Waldmann as Chris Keller, the anguished inheritor of his brother’s girl and Edward Harrison as the darkly avenging angel George Deever, raging son of Joe’s scapegoated, jailed deputy.”

Emma Clarendon in Love London Love Culture writes, “Alex Waldmann as Chris delivers the most passionate performance from his awkward manner of talking to Ann about marriage, to the way in which he confronts Joe showcases an exhausting amount of emotion.”
