This thesis is a record of the Fall 2007 production of Arthur Miller’s play, All My Sons, as directed by Graham Northrup. Chapter One seeks to contextualize the play by presenting a brief professional biography of Miller and the circumstances that attended its writing. Chapter Two contains a production analysis of the script, which seeks to determine the nature of its structure, themes, characters, and setting. Chapter Three details the design concept and the process of implementing the scenic, lighting, costume, and sound elements for the show. Chapter Four is a record and a reflection on the rehearsal process, from auditions through dress rehearsals. Chapter Five presents a critique of the performances, as well as a reflection on the entire production process.


Includes bibliographical references (p. 119-123).
