Arthur Miller has set this devastating play inside a mind. The mind belongs to Quentin, a lawyer with a lofty reputation and a prosecutor's zeal for pursuing the finest threads of guilt. Yet the guilt that most obsesses Quentin is his own: his guilt as son and husband, friend, lover, and man. And in the course of his plunge through the labyrinths of consciousness and conscience, Quentin will be joined by several hostile witnesses -- from the partner he abandoned to the beautiful, childlike wife he couldn't save. Masterly in its orchestration, searing in its candor, After the Fall is a victory of the moral imagination.
