No Villain is a play written by Arthur Miller during his sophomore year of college in 1936, during spring break. This was his first work, reportedly written in six days in the hope of winning a $250 Hopwood Award in drama, the first of two that he won. No Villain explores Marxist theory and inner conflict through an individual facing ruin as a result of a strike.
The audience is introduced in the first scene to the Simons, an immigrant family, in their parlor anxiously awaiting the return of their son from University. The Simons were at once successful but appear to have fallen upon rough times.
