Arthur Miller Classic Death Of A Salesman To Make West End Transfer

Following critical acclaim for its run in Stratford-upon-Avon, the Royal Shakespeare Company's production of Death Of A Salesman will transfer to the West End's Noel Coward Theatre. Starring Antony Sher, the play will open on May 9, 2015 and is part of the centenary celebrations for playwright Arthur Miller

The last major UK revival of this classic play was the 2005 West End production starring Brian Dennehy.

Written by the legendary Arthur Miller, whose other plays include The CrucibleAll My Sons and A View From The BridgeDeath Of A Salesman is a work of tremendous emotional impact.

The 1949 Pulitzer prize-winning play centres on the failed dreams and thwarted ambitions of a 60-something salesman living in Brooklyn. Willy Loman has spent his whole life "way out there in the blue, riding a smile and a shoeshine”, proud of his ability to sell anything to anyone and to provide for his family. Now he finds himself at the end of his career, and at the end of his rope. He's lost his job, the respect of his sons, and finally, his hope.

Gregory Doran said: "Death Of A Salesman is, without doubt in my mind, the greatest American play of the 20th Century and it has taken its rightful place, alongside Shakespeare, on our main stage in Stratford-upon-Avon, to mark the centenary of Arthur Miller's birth. I am delighted we are able to share this production with London audiences at the Noël Coward Theatre."

The West End transfer of Gregory Doran's production features the full Stratford cast and will have a ten week from until 18 July, 2015. The Death Of A Salesman cast includes Harriet WalterAlex Hassell and Sam Marks.
