In Miller's very first play, life gives a young man just what he needs and wants - a wife and property, a thriving motor repair business, a son. But it all drives him distracted as he waits for the misfortune he perceives to be inevitable. Those around him, some of them tragically luckless, react in ways supportive and not. The play is a somewhat uneasy mix of comedy and drama, realism and fable, Miller and Thornton Wilder. It's an interesting and engaging work nevertheless. While there are few moments of great dramatic excitement, there are also no flaws. Pacing is good, and every cast member is solid, capable, and professional. While this production will especially intrigue Miller aficionados, it should interest any listener.
