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.

“Elegant, resonant staging of Arthur Miller’s great American play. ”

Natasha Tripney (The Stage, Time Out)

“Arthur Miller’s classic about the failure, the flipside, of the American Dream has a quiet magnificence... Superb drama. ”

Fiona Mountford (Evening Standard)

“Sher [is] splendid... Walter is reliably brilliant... Hassell is magnetically pitiful... Doran... makes it all look effortless. ”

Andrzej Lukowski (Time Out)

“Deeply admirable... Performed by a note-perfect company... Faithful and quietly epic production. ”

Theo Bosanquet (Time Out, What's On Stage)

“Stunning central performances... Walter [is] pretty much pitch perfect as the pragmatic but put-upon Linda. ”
