Bath Theatre Royal Productions and Jonathan Church Productions present
by Arthur Miller
Directed by Jonathan Church
Starring David Suchet, Brendan Coyle, Sara Stewart and Adrian Lukis
One of Britain’s most celebrated actors, David Suchet (Poirot), stars as furniture dealer Gregory Solomon with Olivier Award winning Brendan Coyle (Downton Abbey) playing Victor, Adrian Lukis as Walter and Sara Stewart as Victor’s wife, Esther. Jonathan Church directs this 50th anniversary production of Arthur Miller’s riveting drama.
The Price tells the story of two long-estranged brothers, Victor and Walter Franz, meeting in their former childhood home following the death of their father. When Gregory Solomon, a silver-tongued used furniture dealer, arrives to close a deal he hasn’t counted on the brothers being there to confront each other.
First seen on Broadway in 1968, The Price was nominated for two Tony Awards including Best Play. It was most recently revived in New York in 2017, starring Mark Ruffalo and Danny DeVito.
