Playwright Arthur Miller may be best-known for plays like Death of a Salesman, The Crucible, and All My Sons, but his roster of award-winning works extends far beyond this handful of hits. He's also the bright literary mind behind The Price, a play penned in the 1960s that explores the price of personal sacrifice versus monetary gain. This poignant piece is coming back to the stage in DC this fall. The Price at Arena Stage debuts on October 6th and runs through November 12th.
The production weaves the story of Victor Franz, a man who finds himself suddenly called back home when his father passes away. It's been a long time since he has stepped foot in his childhood attic, where pieces of furniture and mementos send he and his estranged brother on a journey down memory lane. However, when professional appraiser Gregory Solomon sums up the stuff in dollars, Victor must decide what his memories are really worth. Purchase tickets to the show for $81 apiece.
