Programme Notes

Director's Notes

The fortress to which ‘All My Sons’ lays siege is the fortress of unrelatedness. It is an assertion not so much of a morality in terms of right and wrong, but of a moral world being such because men cannot walk away from certain of their deeds.

 

In this sense Joe Keller is a threat to Society, and as such the play is a social play. Its “socialness” does not reside in its having dealt with the crime of selling defective materials to a nation at war, it is that the crime is seen as having roots in a certain relationship of the individual to society, which, if dominant, can mean a jungle experience for us all.
