DEATH OF A SALESMAN

Directed by Paige Rattray

“Why must everybody conquer the world?”

Witness an extraordinary ensemble bringing one of the 20th century’s most iconic plays to life. Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman is a compassionate insight into the life of a family fracturing in the face of broken dreams, and a stirring call to live for now.

Willy Loman (Jacek Koman) is lost in the wilderness of modern life. Clicking endless miles on the road in his career as a travelling salesman, he’s searching for a sense of meaning. Meanwhile, his wife Linda (Helen Thomson) is trying desperately to keep the faith and his sons (Josh McConville and Callan Colley) are, in their own ways, rebelling against repeating his mistakes.

In some of the best writing ever composed for the stage, Willy and his family must tear through the illusions they’ve been fed by modern America and work out the things that really matter. Featuring a plethora of acting talent including Thuso Lekwape, Phillip Quast, Bruce Spence, Contessa Treffone, Kimie Tsukakoshi, Brigid Zengeni and Alan Zhu, this remarkable production is a showcase of the revelatory power of theatre.

STC Associate Director Paige Rattray (The Beauty Queen of Leenane) shows us the vulnerability and true beauty at the centre of some of theatre’s most heartbreaking moments. This big-hearted and engrossing production will take a tour through the ruins of the American Dream and uncover the fragile humanity that’s threatened by our society’s obsession with success.
