In 1941, a manufacturing company conspired with army inspection officers to approve defective aircraft engines destined for military use, resulting in planes crashing and pilots dying. Arthur Miller turned this story into the award winning play “All My Sons” to explore just how far a man will go to protect his family and his interests. Come see a live production at the Purple Rose Theater.
