The Price

Arena Stage presents The Price one of the most personal plays by an American playwright Arthur Miller. Everything has a price, even our dreams. Victor Franz has returned home to settle his late father's estate and meets the enigmatic Gregory Solomon (Hal Linden), a professional appraiser committed to turning a profit off Victor's past. But before a bargain can be struck, an estranged brother enters the scene to reframe Victor's memories and force them both to reconsider the true cost of personal sacrifices. This production continues through November 12.
