WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Over six days during spring break 1936 at the University of Michigan, a twenty year old college sophomore wrote his first play, No Villain. The aim was to win the prestigious Avery Hopwood award and more importantly the $250 prize he needed in order to return to college the following year. He won the award that year (and the next) but the play was never produced - until now. This remarkable debut play gives us a tantalising glimpse of Miller's early life, the seeding of his political values and the beginning of his extraordinary career.
World Premiere. In close association with the Miller Trust, Sean Turner and the Old Red Lion are proud to present the World Premiere of Miller's first play in this Centenary year of the birth of one of America's greatest dramatists and political icons.
