Why See The Price?
David Suchet and Brendan Coyle Star
From the depths of the West Country comes the Jonathan Church helmed the production of Arthur Miller's The Price. Starring acting legend David Suchet and Downton Abbey favourite Brendan Coyle, this new production marks the 50th anniversary of the Miller classic.
After a glittering run at the Bath Theatre Royal The Price heads to the Wyndham's Theatre for a limited 12 week run from February 5. Telling the story of two brothers at war with each other, The Price is lauded as one of Miller's most important works. Full of sensational wit, David Suchet performs a comic tour de force as slippery furniture dealer Gregory Solomon in this exploration of the pleasures and pitfalls of the American Dream.
The Price debuted on Broadway in 1968, garnering two Tony nominations and winning two Outer Critics Circle Awards. Since then the play had been revived four times on the Great White Way, with the most recent being in 2017 which starred the likes of Danny DeVito and Mark Ruffalo.
What is The Price about?
Following the death of the family patriarch, Victor Franz and his brother Walter return home to divide up the family assets; joining them are Esther, Victor's wife, an alcoholic, and a seedy furniture dealer who is determined to get the best price for his work, no matter the cost to anybody else. Thanks to the Depression, Victor made huge concessions in order to care for his father, whilst his brother Walter left to become a successful doctor; however seeing everybody else paw over his parents' possessions bring out long-buried conflict within himself and forces him to question the value of his sacrifice.

Everything is well judged. Everything works. From the direction and choreography to the set, the lights, the score, the band. From the top of Olympus to the depths of Hades. It's heavenly.
