Sorry, this show is not currently booking.

Following a sold out run at the Young Vic Theatre, the smash hit, critically acclaimed production of Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman transfers to the West End for 10 weeks only.

Considered to be one of the greatest plays of the twentieth century, this powerful and devastating production is co-directed by two-time Tony Award and Olivier Award winner Marianne Elliott (Company, War Horse, Angels In America) and Miranda Cromwell. Together, they bring a unique vision to this American classic, as seen through the eyes of an African-American family.

Wendell Pierce (The Wire, Suits) and Sharon D. Clarke (Doctor Who, Caroline, or Change) will lead the cast of Death of a Salesman at the Piccadilly Theatre.

Death of a Salesman is booking from 24 October 2019 until 4 January 2020 at the Piccadilly Theatre, London.

WHO’S IN IT? DEATH OF A SALESMAN CAST

Wendell Pierce, best known to UK audiences for his tv roles in Suits, The Wire and Amazon series Jack Ryan will star as Willy Loman with Olivier Award-winning actress Sharon D. Clarke (Doctor Who, The Amen Corner, Caroline, Or Change) playing his wife, Linda Loman.

Full casting to be announced.

WHAT’S THE STORY?

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.

CREATIVE TEAM

Written by Arthur Miller in 1949, Death Of A Salesman will be co-directed by Marianne Elliott and Miranda Cromwell. The creative team includes Anna Fleischle (set and costume), Aideen Malone (lighting), Carolyn Downing (sound), Femi Temowo (composer and musical director) and Yarit Dor (fight direction and additional movement support).
