All My Sons Questions

Bring on the tough stuff - there’s not just one right answer.

  1. Do you think the world is divided into honest suckers (Steve Deevers) and dishonest winners (Joe Kellers)?
  2. Would you call Arthur Miller a humanist or a misanthrope? That is, does he believe people are fundamentally good or bad?
  3. Do you think Larry's suicide was an act of courage? What about Joe's? Is suicide ever an act of courage?
  4. Drawing from people in your life, cast All My Sons. (You don't have to tell them, especially if its not so flattering.)
  5. Do you think this play would work if it was updated to the 21st century? Why or why not?
