The Price

Written by Arthur Miller

Part of the Penguin Modern Classics Series

The Price Synopsis

Victor, a New York cop nearing retirement, moves among furniture in the disused attic of a house marked for demolition. Cabinets, desks, a damaged harp, an overstuffed armchair - the relics of a lost life of affluence he's finally come to sell. But when his brother Walter, who he hasn't spoken to in years, arrives, the talk stops being just about whether Victor's been offered a fair price for the furniture, and turns to the price that one and not the other of them paid when their father lost both his fortune and the will to go on ... Fraught, but cut through with humour, The Price is one of Arthur Miller's finest plays.
