The US playwright Arthur Miller is a name to conjure with, widely regarded as America's finest. This play won multiple awards when first staged on Broadway in 1949. And it's been filling theatres ever since, partly an essay in social criticism, part tragedy, part rich psychological study. The story? The ageing salesman Willy Loman returns from his latest sales trip exhausted and depressed. He's on the brink of retirement but what has he really achieved through long decades of hard work and struggle?
The anti-hero Willy's beloved sons Biff and Happy are sporty and handsome but he feels they're failing to live up to his expectations. He finds himself spiralling into a storm of regret, reminiscing about his past and railing against the failure of his long-held belief in the American Dream to deliver the wealth and success he expected. The end result is a powerfully disturbing emotional journey which soon turns into a tragedy. Fascinating stuff, a real intellectual treat that's definitely not to be missed! Catch it while you can... it's playing at the Noel Coward theatre for a strictly limited season with the Royal Shakespeare Company at the helm.
