My Life at the Theater: The Price
THE PRICE debuted on Broadway in 1968 and played for more than a year. It has twice been revived on Broadway. I saw it at the Jewish Ensemble Theater in West Bloomfield Hills, MI in 1993. I always get a lot out of Miller's plays and have seen a lot of them.
This one concerns two brothers and a sister, squabbling after their father's death about a piece of furniture and the quality of their lives. Most of Miller's plays concern fathers and sons. Or at least family relations. I guess most plays in general do.
