Considered to be the greatest American tragedy ever written, this production of Arthur Miller’s 1949 play Death of a Salesman is timed to celebrate the centenary of Miller’s birth.
The full Stratford Upon Avon cast will reprise their roles with Antony Sher and Alex Hassel playing Willy Loman and his son Biff, with award winning actress Harriet Walter playing Linda Loman.

In the land of the free, each man is in charge of his own destiny. Willy Loman knows and cherishes this truth. After a life of honest hard work, it’s Willy’s birthright to retire with his loving wife and watch his two athletic, handsome sons continue his legacy.
Yet as old age begins to take hold and retirement beckons, Willy’s dream seems further away than ever. Decades of graft have somehow failed to translate into wealth and his eldest son refuses to follow the path his father has chosen for him. As actions buried in his past re-surface, Willy struggles to reconcile his long cherished dream with the life he has actually lived.
