The Ride Down Mt. Morgan Summary

The Ride Down Mt. Morgan by Arthur Miller

'Mr. Miller knows his audience... he is letting us know, the devil will have his due.' NEW YORK TIMES When insurance agent Lyman Felt is hospitalised following a near-fatal car crash, both of his wives show up at his bedside and his duplicitous bigamy is revealed. As his shocked spouses - the prim Theo and the assertive Leah - reel from this revelation and their husband's hypocrisy, an outrageous question is presented: is marriage actually easier this way? Touching on themes of betrayal, crisis and reconciliation, The Ride Down Mt. Morgan is one of Miller's more controversial works, and was nominated for the Tony Award for Best Play in 1991. This Methuen Drama Student Edition is edited by Thiago Russo, with commentary and notes that explore the play's production history (including excerpts from an interview with director David Esbjornson) as well as the dramatic, thematic and academic debates that surround it.
