About the show

The Young Vic’s blistering new production of Death of a Salesman transfers to the West End, with Wendell Pierce reprising his role as tragic husband and father Willy Loman. Described as “a revelation” by The Financial Times, it opens at the Piccadilly Theatre on 24 October 2019.

Widely considered to be Arthur Miller’s masterpiece, Death of a Salesman exposes the pressures and fallacies of the American Dream. Willy Loman, a travelling salesman, his wife Linda, and their sons Biff and Happy strive to represent the picture-perfect family. But as Willy begins to crack under the pressure of the commercial rat race at work and home, his strongly held belief that graft and diligence is the key to achievement falls apart. In this new revival, co-director Marianne Elliott brings her distinct vision to the play, seen through the eyes of an African American family.

Death of a Salesman stars American actor Wendell Pierce, who is best known for his long-running role as Bunk Moreland in The Wire. His previous stage credits include Queenie and Brothers from the Bottom. He is joined by Sharon D Clarke (who was most recently on stage in Caroline, or Change and Blues in the Night) as Linda Loman, Sope Dirisu (RSC: Coriolanus) as Biff Loman and Natey Jones (National Theatre: Small Island) as Happy Loman.

Further casting will be announced at a later date.

The show is co-directed by Marianne Elliott and Miranda Cromwell. Elliott has enjoyed major success recently, with Company (2018) picking up multiple Olivier Awards, and her ground-breaking revival of Angels in America transferring to Broadway with Andrew Garfield and Lee Pace. Cromwell has previously worked with Elliott as a producer.

The creative team also includes designer Anna Fleischle (Home, I’m Darling), and sound designer Carolyn Downing (Chimerica).

With a devastating central performance bringing new resonance to Miller’s classic, Death of a Salesman at the Piccadilly Theatre is sure to be another success from one of the UK’s most exciting directors. It opens for a limited run on 24 October 2019.
