Arthur Miller's 'The Price' joins Barrington Stage season
PITTSFIELD — Arthur Miller's "The Price" has been added to Barrington Stage Company's 2020 season.
Directed by BSC founding artistic director Julianne Boyd, the production is scheduled to rum Oct. 1-18 on the Boyd-Quinson Mainstage, 30 Union St. Press opening is 3 p.m. Oct. 4.
Casting will be announced at a later date.
"The Price" marks the fourth Miller play to be staged by Boyd at BSC, following productions of "The Crucible" (2010), "All My Sons" (2012) and Miller's adaptation of Henrik Ibsen's "An Enemy of the People" (2014).
"The Price" originally opened on Broadway in 1968. It has since received four Broadway revivals.
The drama is set in the attic of a condemned Manhattan brownstone where two long-estranged brothers meet to dispose of their deceased parents' property. Victor is a policeman who sacrificed his education to care for their invalid father who never recovered from the Wall Street Crash; Walter is a successful surgeon who turned his back on his family to concentrate on medicine and personal success. The brothers' confrontation escalates as they negotiate the sale of the family's belongings with an elderly Russian Jewish second-hand furniture dealer.
Subscriptions for the 2020 season are now on sale at barringtonstageco.org. Single tickets go on sale March 10.
