The Ride Down Mt. Morgan (Student Editions)
In Arthur Miller's 1991 play, The Ride Down Mt. Morgan, Lyman Felt is hospitalised after a serious car crash and two women claiming to be his wife meet by his side. Caught in a web of lies between two families looking for an explanation, Lyman's reasons for his deceitfulness shed new light on old memories and replace deception with the unavoidable, aching truth. Betrayal and bigamy, crisis and reconciliation are just some of the themes probed by the playwright who also wrote Death of a Salesman, All My Sons, The Crucible and The View From the Bridge. This Student Edition features a commentary by Toby Zinman, Professor of English, University of the Arts, Philadelphia.
