Friday, January 19th, 7:00 p.m.
Arthur Miller’s The Price
Directed by Johannah Blackman
With Jon Ellsworth, Jim Fisher, Randall Simons and Lori Sitzabee


Like all of our belongings, all of our decisions in life come at a price. Miller's Tony Award nominee for Best Play explores the value of furniture and choices through two acts of shining dialogue. When two estranged brothers, Victor and Walter Franz, reunite to dispose of their father's expansive collection of furniture, years of family tensions and secrets are revealed as each brother faces his decisions and the resulting course of his life. Crucial to this reckoning are Gregory Solomon, an octogenarian furniture salesman with his own decisions to face and some wisdom to share, and Esther Franz, wife to Victor - a woman who has lived with disappointment for too long.
