Pulitzer Prize–winning playwright Arthur Miller captivated audiences for more than six decades with insight into the lives of tragic, everyday heroes seen in masterpieces such as Death of a Salesman and The Crucible. This spring, Raven Theatre’s artists of the American experience showcase a lesser-known chapter in Miller’s legacy with The Price, a tale of two estranged brothers deadlocked in a tug of war over their deceased parents’ belongings. Viewers squirm to the edge of their seats as Victor, an underpaid cop, feuds with his successful sibling, Walter, during a conflict that unearths family attachments and Walter’s childhood habit of storing his socks in the cookie jar.
Much of the Raven’s ensemble has been with the company for decades, taking on writing, directing, backdrop-impersonating, and design duties in addition to starring on the intimate stage. Giant sheet-metal letters welcome culturevores from a neighborhood corner in Edgewater into the minimalistic yet warm theater, named one of CBS Chicago’s Best Neighborhood Theatres.
