When the Great Depression cost his family their fortune, Victor Franz (Michael Muldoon, of Yorktown Heights) gave up his dream of an education, to support his father. Three decades later, Victor has returned to his childhood home to sell the remainder of his parents’ estate. His wife Esther (Melinda O’Brien, of Yorktown Heights), his estranged brother Walter (Richard Troiano, of Monroe), and furniture appraiser Gregory Solomon (Bruce Apar, of Yorktown Heights) all arrive with their own agendas, forcing Victor to question the true value of his sacrifice.
One of the most personal plays by the consummate voice of the American everyman, Arthur Miller’s The Price is a riveting story about the struggle to make peace with the past and create hope for the future. Clive Barnes for The New York Times: “The Price is one of the most engrossing and entertaining plays that Miller has ever written.”
