"We are in this world and you’re going to have to find some way to love it!"

Two men visit their wives in a psychiatric hospital. Both women struggle with depression and addiction to prescription drugs.

Once ‘the handsomest pair in town’, Patty and her carpenter husband, Leroy, now struggle to make ends meet whilst trying to create a home for their seven children.

John Frick, a wealthy businessman, can’t understand why Karen, ‘a woman who has everything she could possibly want’, has inexplicably ‘lost all her optimism’.

In a world where so many people experience mental health concerns, Arthur Miller’s funny, compassionate and profoundly moving play gives hope to us all.

Presented by the University of Bolton and Bolton Library and Museum Services, with support from the Octagon Theatre.
