About the Title

During the course of the play, an act of social and legal injustice is revealed and righted while the family patriarch, Joe Keller, simultaneously learns the meaning of solidarity. Claiming to have only shipped faulty aircraft parts to keep his business thriving for his own two sons, Joe realizes the 21 pilots who died because of his crime were also "his sons," and he was equally responsible for their lives.
