Set in America in 1947, All My Sons tells the story of a couple who are a success story despite making tough choices and surviving hard knocks, including the loss of their eldest son in the war.

They have built a home, raised two sons and established a thriving business but their lives are about to shatter with the return of a figure from the past.

Long-buried truths will be forced to the surface and the price of their American dream is laid bare.

Further casting and dates for the production are yet to be announced.
