Although Arthur Miller is best known for his plays, Death of a Salesman, All My Sons, A View from the Bridge and The Crucible, he wrote many other plays during his lifetime. Esteemed as one of the outstanding playwrights in United States theatre, Miller tackled issues of social and individual responsibility. The Ride Down Mount Morgan, one of his later plays, deals with issues of personal morality. Actors such as Tom Conti and Patrick Stewart played the role of Lyman Felt. Just as Willie Loman’s name in Death of a Salesman suggests the theme of the play, so Lyman’s name indicates the central issue in The Ride Down Mount Morgan drama.
Oldcastle Theatre Company is presenting the play as their final production in an outstanding 2016 season. The play runs from October 7 to October 23. Bob and I were fortunate to interview Nigel Gore and Katrina Ferguson about the play early in the rehearsal process.
