Paul Golder writes for the Brentwood Gazette
There are so many great theatrical groups in the Brentwood area and it’s always great to pass on news of the latest local productions to our listeners.
Paula Harris Brett and Tom Andrew Hughes of Blackmore Players visited Michelle Ward’s show to talk about their production of the Arthur Miller classic All My Sons. This is a book I read for my English O Level and it bored me to tears, although I re-read it a few years ago and loved it, so I think my attention span has improved over the years!
The play is set in the summer of 1946 and is a fantastic narrative of greed, lies, love and suspense, examining how a typical American family comes to terms with loss and disappointment. Paula and Tom talk about their love of acting and why they chose this play.
Directed by Lisa Rawlings, All My Sons will be performed on Thursday, Friday and Saturday at Blackmore Village Hall. You can hear Paula and Tom’s interview again at phoenixfm.com.
