    The Price tickets

    Theatre Royal Bath’s production of Arthur Miller’s play The Price is rewarded with a West End transfer in February 2019. Starring the inimitable David Suchet and directed by Jonathan Church, it marks the play’s 50th anniversary. The tale of a pair of brothers who meet for the very first time while selling their parents’ furniture, it is Miller at his heart-breaking best.

    Victor and Walter Franz meet in the attic of a condemned New York brownstone with the aim of selling some of their family possessions. Watched over by the wily furniture dealer Gregory Solomon, the brothers are party to revelation after revelation, by which they slowly come to realise the consequence of their past decisions. Suddenly the cost of the pieces of furniture before them seem no weightier than that of the choices they made so long ago.

    The Price runs at the West End's Wyndham's Theatre following a critically acclaimed season in Bath during the summer of 2018. The play itself was first seen on Broadway in 1968, following which it was nominated for two Tony Awards and won two Outer Critics Circle Awards.

    Arthur Miller was an important figure in 20th century American playwriting whose work spanned over seven decades. Among his many awards, he received the prestigious Pulitzer Prize for Drama. Some of his most famous plays include A View from the Bridge and The Crucible.

    David Suchet (The Lover/The Collection, Long Day’s Journey Into Night) reprises his role as Gregory Solomon. Brendan Coyle (The Weir, Buried Child) returns in the role of Victor Franz while Adrian Lukis returns as his brother Walter Franz. Sara Stewart plays Esther Franz , the wife of Victor.

    Jonathan Church holds the position of Artistic Director of the Theatre Royal Bath Summer Season and boasts theatre directing credits that include Singin’ in the Rain and The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui.

    The production is presented by Theatre Royal Bath Productions and Jonathan Church Productions. Design is by Simon Higlett, lighting design comes from Paul Pyant and sound design is courtesy of Mike Walker. Associate direction is by Emma Butler, with composition from Matthew Scott and casting by Gabrielle Dawes CDG.

    Church’s lauded production does justice to Miller’s exceptional text, exploring the hurt that family can cause, and the seduction and pitfalls of the American Dream. With a stellar cast and a ream of adoring reviews to back it, this is drama at its most worthwhile. Catch it at Wyndham's Theatre from 5 February 2019, with a press night on 11 February.

    Great play, one of Arthur Miller's best. David Suchet was excellent; the other actors' American accents slipped occasionally but still performed well. Imaginative, clever set. Odd, unintended, backstage noises a couple of times - not good in professional theatre.

    Sadly the co-star, Brendan Coyle, was not performing the evening we attended, however the understudy did a solid job and David Suchet was worth the ticket price alone. The rest of the cast were also pretty sound. The stage set was amazing and certainly reinforced the show. The script is typical Arthur Miller and pretty wordy and the action is more character based than event based. A solid interpretation with some very good performances.

    The first few minutes are taken up with the main character victor looking around the set, it is a master stroke because the audience are immediately drawn in. Things liven up when David Suchet arrives, the show is funny in places and very talkie in others.

    I wasn't familiar with this Arthur Miller play and we attended spontaneously having crossed the road from the underground station and were attracted by the Brendon Coyle, David Suchet and Adrian Lukis trio. £50 each so quite pricey but the first half in particular galloped along. Great use of lights, set design and direction which kept things engaging. Very apt material for today and everyone sustained US accents. We found the wife a bit strident and shrill and couldn't decide if this was deliberate - if so it didn't add anything.

    Excellent performances from all the cast, especially David Suchet. The play wasn't familiar to me, unlike most of Arthur Miller's work, but I liked it a great deal
