During the weekend of Veterans Day, students at Hastings High School performed "All My Sons," a play set in the 1940s. The play by Arthur Miller focuses on the Keller and Deever families and how they were impacted by World War II.

The performance by the Hastings students led the crowd through a variety of emotions. Laughs rang out in response to jokes, many audience members flinched when a well-executed stage slap echoed through the auditorium, and near the end of the performance there were noses blown and tears wiped.

"All My Sons" has about a 90-minute runtime and only has 10 cast members.
