Death of a Salesman

This latest version of Death of a Salesman has already enjoyed a smash hit sell-out run at the Young Vic theatre. It's a widely critically acclaimed production of American playwright Arthur Miller's 1948 classic, and the treatment it has been given this time resonates deeper and further than ever. Death of a Salesman transfers to the Piccadilly Theatre for a limited ten week season. And it's not to be missed. Why's it to good? Marianne Elliott and her team sit at the heart of it, and they have done their famous thing again – this time turning the play on its head by making it about an African American family. And the results are astonishing, supported by truly creative staging that delivers the perfect backdrop for Miller's words.

What's it about? Salesman Willy Loman, played by the exceptionally talented Wendell Pierce, is at the end of his tether, exhausted after thirty five years of trying to make it big and achieve the American Dream. He has failed despite all his efforts. The play reveals what happens during the final 24 hours of Loman's life, a shadow of his former self. The awesome Wendell Pierce, who played dazzling roles in The Wire, Suits and Selma, enjoys his UK stage debut in the leading role. Linda Loman is portrayed by the Olivier Award-winning Sharon D. Clarke. Arinzé Kene, whose roles in Misty, and Been So Long won't be forgotten, is the son Biff Loman, and Martins Imhangbe makes a marvellous job of the other son, Happy. It really is brilliant!
