The Price

The Price

Wyndham's Theatre · 05 FEB - 27 APR

By Arthur Miller

“David Suchet and Brendan Coyle deliver reliably strong performances in Arthur Miller’s play about the final reckoning that follows a death. Two brothers who have followed very different paths in life meet to dispose of the belongings of their millionaire father who lost everything in the 1929 crash. As they do, the legacy of the past begins to unravel.”


Two brothers, Victor and Walter Franz, one a New York cop nearing retirement, the other a successful surgeon, meet for the first time in sixteen years to sell their family furniture stored in the attic of a condemned New York brownstone. Revelation follows stunning revelation as each brother realises the price they have paid for heart breaking decisions made decades earlier. Overseeing the psychological battlefield is the wily veteran appraiser, Gregory Solomon, who has his own demons to conquer as well as securing the best possible price for the Franz family possessions.
