The Price
  • West End

David Suchet delivers a comic tour de force as a silver-tongued 90 year old furniture dealer in Arthur Miller's 'masterpiece' (Daily Telegraph), The Price.

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.

David Suchet, revisiting the work of Arthur Miller after his legendary award-winning performance in All My Sons, plays Gregory Solomon. He is joined by Brendan Coyle (Mr Bates in Downton Abbey) , Adrian Lukis and Sara Stewart who plays Esther Franz, Victor's wife.

This fifty anniversary production of Arthur Miller's richly affecting play - which, like his better known works, mines his preoccupation with the pleasures and perils of the American Dream - transfers from a sell-out run at the Theatre Royal Bath where it was hugely acclaimed by critics and audiences alike.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.
