Publisher's Summary

Set in 1938 Brooklyn, this gripping psychological mystery begins when attractive, level-headed Sylvia Gellburg suddenly loses her ability to walk.

A Miller Classic

Arthur Miller has always been my favorite playwright. He manages to take dark, heavy material and presents it in a unique way. While some will think the material is heavy handed (particularly in current times), everyone should listen to this performance. Miller’s genius is on full display.

Not so good

Simple and melodramatic. This play came late in Miller's career and amounts to a cheap imitation of Henrik I sent. Would not recommend.
