Death of a Salesman


A Pulitzer Prize-Winning Classic about the Cost of the American Dream

Willy Loman’s career is over. During a pivotal 24 hours, he reflects on his life as a father, husband and traveling salesman. Truth and lies intermingle as Willy tries to reconcile the optimism of his youth with his unfulfilled dreams. As the full force of reality crashes down on him, he places his last hope of success in his two sons. Arthur Miller’s classic play challenges us to reconsider what it means to succeed and the cost of chasing the American Dream.

Stephen Rayne (Our Town,The Widow Lincoln,Sabrina Fair) directs Craig Wallace as Willy Loman and Kimberly Schraf as Linda Loman. Recommended for ages 13 and older.
