CFP for the Arthur Miller Journal: Special 2014 edition. Volume 9.
The year 2014 marks the fiftieth year since After the Fall and Incident at Vichy had their premieres at the Lincoln Center Repertory Theatre. Both plays were fraught with
controversy at their debuts. After the Fall marked Miller's return to the New York stage after a nine-year hiatus marked by his marriage to Marilyn Monroe, his writing of the
various versions of The Misfits, his divorce from Monroe, his marriage to Inge Morath, and his correspondence at the Nazi War trials in Frankfurt. After the Fall's premier in
January 1964 was the result of his alliance with the newly formed Lincoln Center Repertory Theatre; Incident at Vichy's premier in December would end his association with the company.
These events seem ripe for re-consideration and evaluation. Thus, the editors invite essays that discuss any aspect of these plays, their place in Miller's canon, their connection to Miller's life and political views, and their status as Holocaust drama. Submission deadline in June 2014.
