The Man Who Had All The Luck by Arthur Miller
A man is a jellyfish. The tide goes in and the tide goes out. About what happens to him, a man has very little to say. Everything David Beeves touches turns to gold. He has a beautiful home and a loving wife, loyal friends and a thriving business. But as those around him trip and fall, David struggles to understand his fate. What if his Midas touch, like the flip of a coin or the pull of the tide, is nothing more than good luck? The Man Who Had All the Luck was Arthur Miller's first play to be produced, premiering in New York in November 1944. Searching philosophical and vehemently political, in intimates so much that will take centre-stage in his better-known work for decades to come. This edition was published to coincide with the revival at the King's Head Theatre, London, in September 2015 in Miller's centenary year.
