Editorial Reviews

Sylvia Gellburg (JoBeth Williams) has stopped walking, and her husband, Philip (Lawrence Pressman), is determined to find out why. His only clue is her growing obsession with stories coming out of Germany about Nazi violence toward Jews. Setting his drama in Brooklyn, 1938, Miller uses the Nazi atrocities overseas as a mirror for the Gellburgs' troubled marriage and Philip's own inadequacies. He creates an intensely personal play, but one that lends itself to the kind of intimacy that audio theater excels in. As Dr. Harry Hyman (David Dukes) probes Sylvia and Philip's secrets, he probes ours as well. Like ripples in pond water, what happens in Germany happens to the Gellburgs and the audience as well, in the hands of these fine artists.

A Miller Classic

Arthur Miller has always been my favorite playwright. He manages to take dark, heavy material and presents it in a unique way. While some will think the material is heavy handed (particularly in current times), everyone should listen to this performance. Miller’s genius is on full display.

Not so good

Simple and melodramatic. This play came late in Miller's career and amounts to a cheap imitation of Henrik I sent. Would not recommend.
