A play in which father destroys son and son destroys father will entertain and excite at St Michael's Theatre in New Ross this week.

New Ross Drama Workshop are putting the finishing touches to this year's production, Arthur Miller's 'All My Sons' which takes place on Thursday, May 11, to Saturday, May 13, at St Michael's Theatre.

The play is imaginatively directed by Margaret Rossiter. The primary action driving the play has already occurred and been buried, apparently, beneath the routines of daily existence. The play tells the story of Joe Keller, (played by Ivan Dungan, who is returning to the stage after a number of years of absence), a successful businessman who lives comfortably with his wife, Kate (Martina Kavanagh), and son, Chris (Edward Hayden), in a suburban American neighbourhood, alongside their neighbours Dr Jim and Sue Bayliss (Peter O'Connor and Nancy Rochford-Flynn), and Frank and Lydia (played by Nicky Flynn and Sinead Croarkin).

Joe and Kate Keller have only one sadness in their lives - the loss of their other son, Larry, who went missing in World War II. After three years, Kate still clings to the hope that her son is alive.

Former neighbours Ann and George Deever (Seona O'Connor and Peter Rothwell) show up on the door of the Keller household and suggest that change is coming.

Tickets cost €12 and can be booked at the theatre box office 051 421255.
