Death of a Salesman
Rediscover one of the greatest plays of the 20th Century as Hearth Theatre presents an intimate production of Arthur Miller's heartbreaking masterpiece Death of a Salesman - a compassionate insight into the life of a family fracturing on the face of broken dreams and a stirring call to live for now.
Willy Loman is lost in the wilderness of modern life. Clicking endless miles on the road in his career as a travelling salesman, he's searching for a sense of meaning. Meanwhile his wife Linda is trying desperately to keep the faith and his sons are, in their own ways, rebelling against repeating his mistakes.
Featuring an extraordinary ensemble of Melbourne actors and directed by Christopher Tomkinson, renowned actor Paul English takes on the iconic and monumental role of Willy Loman, 'a salesman with his feet on the subway stairs, and his head in the stars.'
In some of the best writing ever composed for the stage, Willy and his family must tear through the illusions they've been fed by modern America and work out the things that really matter. This remarkable production is a showcase of the revelatory power of theatre.
This masterpiece can be seen at the Capitol Theatre Tuesday 23 May and Wednesday 24 May.
