All My Sons was Miller's first commercially successful play. Written and premiered right after World War Two, the drama deals with the Keller family and a generational battle between father and son over social responsibility and morality. Miller, who won a Pulitzer Prize for his next play, Death of a Salesman, also wrote the screenplays for "The Misfits" and "The Crucible."
SCR has also announced the cast for its Educational Touring Production of My Mom's Dad, which recently began rehearsals for its Spring 2000 tour of southern California elementary schools. The cast includes Joe Alanes, John-David Keller, Hisa Takakuwa and Courtney Wagner.
