Under The Direction of Tony-Winner Garry Hynes, “The Price”
Runs February 11 – March 22

Rehearsals began for the Center Theatre Group / Mark Taper Forum production of “The Price” by Pulitzer Prize, Tony Award and National Medal of Honor-winner Arthur Miller. The penetrating family drama by one of America’s greatest dramatists will open the Mark Taper Forum’s new season February 11 through March 22, 2015, with the opening set for February 21.

Directed by Tony Award-winner (“The Beauty Queen of Leenane”) Garry Hynes, this poignant story about the cost of choices made over a lifetime, features Kate Burton, John Bedford Lloyd, Alan Mandell and Sam Robards.
“The Price” also features set design by Matt Saunders, costume design by Terese Wadden, lighting design by James F. Ingalls and sound design by Cricket S. Myers. Casting is by Meg Fister and the production stage manager is David S. Franklin.

Two brothers who haven’t spoken to each other in 16 years come together to settle their late father’s estate. Victor (played by Sam Robards), a police officer of 28 years, his brother, Walter (John Bedford Lloyd), a successful surgeon, and Victor’s wife, Esther (Kate Burton), gather in the attic of the family’s New York brownstone, where they are met by Solomon, a wise and wily antiques dealer (Alan Mandell). It is not only years of accumulation of family belongings that need sorting out, but also the hidden motives that long ago fractured the brothers’ relationship.
