Arthur Miller, the most celebrated American playwright of the 20th century, was said to be the moral conscience of the nation, but he had a secret: a son born with Down syndrome whom he refused to acknowledge. Renowned Hollywood reporter Bernard Weinraub explores the fascinating untold story of Miller and his third wife, photographer Inge Morath, and the divide between their public personas and private lives.
“Artistic Director Peter DuBois has been the driving force behind this production of Fall. Peter's encouragement, optimism, and talent has made this play possible. The fact that the play's premiere is taking place at the Huntington is simply thrilling.”— Playwright Bernard Weinraub
“Arthur Miller wrote many plays about the sins of a father being visited on a son, and as a writer he provided a moral compass for a generation. Bernard Weinraub’s exploration of a playwright iconic to our times is a story that has remained with me since the first time I read the script. I’m proud Boston audiences will be the first to see this show and discover more about a playwright that they thought they knew.”— Huntington Artistic Director Peter DuBois
