"The Price" by Arthur Miller, author of “Death of a Salesman”, is a taut, exciting and superbly theatrical story, revealing both the strengths and weaknesses of it characters to each other — and themselves. A brilliant powerful and deeply moving play that examines the relationship of two long-estranged brothers. The “price” of the title is not only about how much a somebody will pay for a collection of furniture and personal affects, but how much we’re prepared to pay for ambitions and desires throughout our lives.
The brothers are played by Steve Liskow and Eric Litsky. Steve has been seen in Proof, Hamlet and Keely & Du. He’s written several award-winning crime sagas and his fifth novel will appear later this spring. Eric has appeared on stage in Fiddler on the Roof, What’s Wrong with this Picture, Don’t Dress for Dinner and An American Daughter. He is one of the founders of The Farmington Valley Stage Company.
Ginny Wolf (Esther), of Farmington, has appeared in numerous productions throughout Connecticut and is currently touring her one woman show about the Connecticut witchcraft panics. She also hosts a radio show on WLIS covering CT arts and entertainment. When not in front of an audience she enjoys working as a voiceover artist.
Stan Fellman (Gregory Solomon) plays a furniture dealer, nearly ninety years old, who brings honesty to the table with his years of experience dealing with families and memories. Stan appeared on stage in The Sunshine Boys, What’s Wrong with This Picture? Mary, Mary; You Know I Can’t Hear You When the Water’s Running, Any Wednesday, Broadway Bound, Rumors, Wait Until Dark and Bermuda Avenue Triangle.
