Curio Theatre Company is opening its 14th season this week with an American classic re-imagined. The West Philly-based theatre company will stage Arthur Miller’s “All My Sons” beginning Wednesday, Oct. 10.

In this 1947 play, Miller portrays a couple, Joe and Kate Keller, living a comfortable suburban life with their son Chris. Their other son, Larry, went missing in action a few years earlier and Chris becomes involved with Larry’s former fiancée, Kate, who must finally accepts that Larry is gone forever, and face the horrible truth about what caused his death. 

Curio Managing Director Gay Carducci directs this powerful tale of denial and injustice, and the cast is led by longtime Curio favorites. Paul Kuhn plays Joe Keller; Trice Baldwin is Kate Keller; Chase Byrd as Chris Keller; Aetna Gallagher as Sue Bayliss; Ken Openaker is Dr. Jim Bayliss; and Harry Slack plays Frank Lubey.

“This is such a timeless piece,” says Carducci-Kuhn. “Even though it was written to take place post World War II, we are not placing it in any time period. The story is about more than that. It’s about things like family, greed, honor, dishonor, responsibility, denial, guilt and social responsibility.”

Previews of the show are this Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, and the opening night is on Saturday, Oct. 13. All performances are at 8 p.m. Regular evening performances run Thursday, Friday and Saturday through Nov. 3. Go here to purchase tickets ($15-$30).
