Why See Death Of A Salesman?
Miller exposes the American Dream
A brand-new revival of the 1949 Tony and Pulitzer Prize-winning play, Pittsburgh's Public Theater's new production telling the tale of the world's most famous salesman arrives in February 2017. One man and his family are caught up in the pressures and delusions of living the American Dream. Miller's play tells the tragic story of a traveling salesman whose illusions of picture-perfect business and family life cave in on him when his own dark secrets come to light. With the action switching between Loman's glory days and the strained relationship with his sons, meet the dark, disparate side of the Dream.
Miller's play sees the central character Willy Loman despairing that his sons have not chosen to follow him down his successful path as a salesman. Aging and mentally degenerating, his concerned wife tries to convince him to work in their home city, in order to protect his health. Willy's dreams of success due to decades of hard graft are slipping away, whilst he stubbornly refuses to accept that his sons have chosen to follow their own destinies. But when he discovers that his oldest son knows about an affair Loman once had, he takes drastic and permanent action so that his son follows the right path.
