WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Everything has a price — even our dreams. Victor Franz has returned home to settle his late father's estate. In an attic overflowing with memories and furniture, he meets the enigmatic Gregory Solomon (Hal Linden), a professional appraiser committed to wringing a profit from Victor's past. But before a bargain can be struck, an estranged brother enters the scene to reframe Victor's memories and force them both to reconsider the true cost of personal sacrifices. One of the most personal plays by an American theater giant, Arthur Miller's The Price is a fascinating study of the struggle to make peace with the past and create hope for the future.
