Overview

After receiving wide critical-acclaim for its run in Stratford-upon-Avon, the RSC production of Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman transfers to the Noel Coward Theatre for a limited ten week season.

Opening on May 9th 2015 as part of the centenary celebrations for playwright Arthur Miller, this marks the first UK revival of the play since the 2005 West End production starring Brian Dennehy.

Famously depicting the demise of the American Dream, Death of a Salesman follows the story of Willy Loman, a traveling salesman reaching retirement and disappointed with his eldest son, Biff’s, failure to make anything of himself. Events from the past begin to resurface, but the line between reality and the lies we indulge in become blurred. The play employs a dreamlike structure, showing the audience everything happening inside Willy’s mind. As Willy loses his job, his son’s respect and his hope, the play builds to a tragic climax.

Directed by the RSC’s Artistic Director Gregory Doran, the transfer includes the full Stratford cast, starring Antony Sher as Willy Loman. Further casting includes Alex Hassell as Biff, Sam Marks as Happy and Harriet Walter as Linda Loman. Design is by Stephen Brimson Lewis, lighting by Tim Mitchell and sound by Jonathan Ruddick.

One of the greatest American tragedies, Death of a Salesman was recipient of the 1949 Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award for Best Play. Miller also wrote The Crucible, All My Sons and A View from the Bridge. Death of a Salesman opens at the Noel Coward Theatre May 9th and runs until July 18th 2015.
