The cast is set for the Huntington Theatre Company’s world premiere production of Fall. The Bernard Weinraub play, which explores the little-known story of Arthur Miller’s estranged relationship with his son born with Down syndrome, will run May 18–June 16 at the Boston Center for the Arts’ Calderwood Pavilion.
Josh Stamberg (The Affair, Roundabout’s Distracted) will take on the role of playwright Miller. Joining him will be Joanne Kelly (Storefront Theatre’s The House of Yes) as Inge Morath, Miller’s third wife; Nolan James Tierce (Newton Country Player’s Harvey) as their son Daniel Miller, Joanna Glushak (War Paint) as Dr. Wise, and John Hickok (Parade) as Robert Whitehead.
Through Fall, reporter and playwright Weinraub unfolds the story of Daniel Miller, who was institutionalized as an infant after being diagnosed with Down syndrome. As Arthur Miller became revered for such plays as All My Sons, The Crucible, Death of a Salesman, and A View From the Bridge, he kept a divide between his career and personal life—failing to mention Daniel in his memoir. Daniel was not present at Arthur Miller’s funeral in 2005.
The production, helmed by Huntington Artistic Director Peter DuBois, will feature sets by Brandon McNeel, costumes by Ilona Somogyi, lighting design by Philip S. Rosenberg, sound design by John Gromada, and projections by Zachary Borovay.
