9780141189987: SE The Price UK ed (Penguin Modern Classics)

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.

From the Inside Flap:

Arthur Miller's deeply moving drama reunites two long estranged middle-aged brothers. Nostalgia and recrimination erupt as they sell off an attic full of furniture, their last link to a family and a world that no longer exist. This 1968 classic is a wrenching saga of plaintive gestures and missed opportunities. A BBC Co-production.

An L.A. Theatre Works full-cast performance featuring Richard Dreyfuss, Amy Irving and Harris Yulin.

From the Back Cover:

In a building slated for imminent demolition, two brothers, long estranged, reunite to sell off their family's possessions. In short time the transaction draws in one man's wife and an ancient but still wily furniture dealer. And a crowded attic becomes the setting for an acrid, funny, and moving inquest into the wounds of family, the allure of the disposable, and the nature of human failure.
