"…one of the most engrossing and entertaining plays that Miller has ever written. It is superbly, even flamboyantly theatrical…" - The New York Times

Years after an angry breakup, Victor and Walter Franz are reunited by the death of their father. As they sort through his possessions in an old brownstone attic, the memories evoked by his belongings stir up old hostilities. The Price was nominated for two Tony Awards, including best play.

About the Playwright

Arthur Miller is considered one of the greatest American playwrights of the 20th century. His best known plays include 'All My Sons,' 'A View from the Bridge,' 'The Crucible' and the Pulitzer Prize-winning 'Death of a Salesman.' Born in Harlem, New York, in 1915, Arthur Miller attended the University of Michigan before moving back East to write dramas for the stage. He earned widespread praise for Death of a Salesman, which opened on Broadway in 1949 and won the Pulitzer Prize along with multiple Tonys. He received more acclaim for his award-winning follow-up, The Crucible, which reflected his unwavering refusal to cooperate with the House Un-American Activities Committee. Miller's public life was painted in part by his rocky marriage to Hollywood sex symbol Marilyn Monroe. The playwright died in 2005 at the age of 89, leaving a body of work that continues to be re-staged internationally and adapted for the screen. More information.
