Arthur Miller and Soulpepper seems to be a great combination. They did a great job with Death of a Salesman and now have produced an equally powerfully version of The Price.
The small cast is outstanding. It is hard to choose the best – David Fox as Gregory Solomon was so believable as a 97 year old, charming, wise and funny.
Michael Hanrahan gave us a Victor Franz who carried the production. He is the cop- the realist, and the one who finally realises the price he has paid for the choices he has made, and he is content. Jane Spidell as his wife also comes to realise that her life is the one she has chosen and she would not have chosen otherwise. Stuart Hughes is the succcessful brother who has the most clear understanding of the choices he has made, but he is also the one who does not think he has paid the right price.
Miller lets us know that we each have to decide what price to pay and only we can decide if it was too much.
