Play Review – No Villain

Written for a playwriting competition in 1936 and not performed until 2015, Arthur Miller’s first play contains many of the elements that would come to characterise later classics such as All My Sons, The Crucible and most notably of all Death of a Salesman. No Villain traces the declining fortunes and father son tensions of a New York Jewish family as an industry-wide strike proves disastrous for their garment-making business during the Great Depression.
