Many believe After the Fall to be Arthur Miller’s most personal—and controversial—play. It is a searing drama about Miller, Marilyn and America in the 1950s and is played out against the rising Cold War with Russia and its political ramifications. Although he denied that the character of Maggie was Monroe, the play is considered to be Miller’s self critique following his divorce from the world famous movie star.

Miller is considered one of the great American playwrights, along with Tennessee Williams and Eugene O’Neill. Among his best known works are the Tony Award winning “The Crucible” which is his most frequently produced work, “A View From The Bridge” which won the 2016 Tony Award for Best Revival, and, of course, “Death of a Salesman,” a landmark of 20th-century drama which won the triple crown of theatrical artistry: the New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award, the Tony, and the Pulitzer Prize.

Directed by James Cady, After the Fall was ahead of its time because much of it takes place in the mind of the lead character. This is the story of a man who must move past his memories in order to accept the love of a new woman in his life. And so he does battle with his demons, the most prominent being the shadow of his second wife, Marilyn Monroe.
