The Man Who Had All the Luck

Tomorrow afternoon (Saturday April 10th, 2:00 pm at the Greenhouse Theater) we’ll be reading and discussing Arthur Miller’s first full-length play, The Man Who Had All the Luck. It’s kind of like Death of a Salesman in reverse – everything goes right for David Beeves, and his good fortune drives him slowly to the point of madness as he watches everyone around him struggle with their lack of luck. Miller called this “a fable,” and the story is by turns tragic, funny, instructive and cautionary. It’s a fun script to explore, and a fascinating look at a legendary playwright’s early ideas.

This event is part of our Playwright Scholar Series, giving subscribers a chance to explore our featured playwrights with us beyond the three main productions. It’s free for Eclipse subscribers and for the general public ($5 suggested donation for non-subscribers), and a good reason to subscribe to the 2010 Arthur Miller Season.
