Death of a Salesman

Apr 28 – May 29 2016

Death of a Salesman
by Arthur Miller
April 28 – May 29, 2016

Under the direction of ArtsWest’s Artistic Director Mathew Wright, Arthur Miller is brought to the stage in a stripped down, elegant and savage production of a tragic love story between father and son.  This thrilling work lays bare the raw emotions of love, the desire for success, and the need for compassion in a horror story of shame, guilt and expectations run amok.

Death of a Salesman tells the story of the last days of Willy Loman, a failing salesman, who cannot understand how he failed to win success and happiness. Through a series of tragic soul-searching revelations of the life he has lived with his wife, his sons, and his business associates, we discover how his quest for the “American Dream” kept him blind to the people who truly loved him. A thrilling work of deep and revealing beauty that remains one of the most profound classic dramas of the American theatre.
