Death of a Salesman
Written by the legendary Arthur Miller, whose other plays include The Crucible, All My Sons and A View From The Bridge, Death Of A Salesman is a work of tremendous emotional impact.
The 1949 Pulitzer prize-winning play centres on the failed dreams and thwarted ambitions of a 60-something salesman living in Brooklyn. Willy Loman has spent his whole life "way out there in the blue, riding a smile and a shoeshine”, proud of his ability to sell anything to anyone and to provide for his family. Now he finds himself at the end of his career, and at the end of his rope. He's lost his job, the respect of his sons, and finally, his hope.
The West End transfer of Gregory Doran's production features the full Stratford cast and will have a ten week from until 18 July, 2015. The Death Of A Salesman cast includes Harriet Walter, Alex Hassell and Sam Marks.
