Death of a Salesman
See this seminal play by Arthur Miller like never before with Death of a Salesman tickets
After a sell-out run at the Young Vic, Death of a Salesman transfers to the Piccadilly Theatre for a ten week run beginning in October.
Arthur Miller’s seminal Death of a Salesman follows the memories, dreams, and confrontations that make up the last 24 hours of the life of Willy Loman. Miller won a Pulitzer Prize for the work, which he described as “the tragedy of a man who gave his life, or sold it” in pursuit of the American Dream.
Wendell Pierce (The Wire, Suits, Selma) makes his UK stage debut as Willy Loman, a role previously taken on by some of the acting world’s most celebrated names, such as Dustin Hoffman, Christopher Lloyd and Philip Seymour Hoffman. He stars alongside Olivier Award-winning Sharon D. Clarke as Linda Loman and Arinzé Kene (Misty, Been So Long) as Biff Loman.
Following her recent award-winning successes Company and Angels in America, Marianne Elliott co-directs Death of a Salesman with Miranda Cromwell, (Associate Director on Company and Angels in America), bringing a new twist to what is widely regarded as one of the greatest plays of the twentieth century.
A story of one man’s painful struggle with the American Dream, Death of a Salesman will begin its run at the Piccadilly Theatre on 24 October, with a press night on 4th November.
