About this show

Exhibiting playwright Arthur Miller's skill as a storyteller and social commentator, Death of a Salesman has lost none of its potency or relevance as it examines our national obsession with wealth and success. In the iconic figures of Linda and Willy Loman, Miller created two of the most remarkable characters ever seen on stage. Willy has made his living riding on a smile and a shoeshine. While chasing his elusive American Dream, he has put unrelenting pressure on his sons to achieve at all costs. Faced with the end of his career, he's haunted by missed opportunities and a troubled past. As the truth unravels, Linda struggles to help her increasingly desperate husband. Death of a Salesman is presented as part of the Arthur Miller Festival and performs in repertory with A View from the Bridge.
