Storyline

In a small American town, prosperity seems to be just around the corner with the opening of a promising new water spring. However, the former chief proponent, Dr. Morton Stockman, learns that the springs are contaminated and presents a serious heath threat. However, that revelation and his determination to warn the public puts him against the political elite, including his brother, the mayor, who refuses to believe him. Driven with emotional conviction and a misguided faith in public opinion, Dr. Stockman is determined to get his warning out, but the realities about his community are out to frustrate him.

Best version of Miller's classic Adaptation
5 February 2019 | by alan_tufftSee all my reviews

The 1977 version of this play starring Steve McQueen and available on iTunes for $2.99 is dull and boring compared to fast pace of action in this stage play version starring John Glover. This version highlightes the sense of expediency political movements have. During the age of Pres Trump this play is very relevant.
