Arthur Miller’s Pulitzer Prize winning play of 1949 is widely considered to a cornerstone of American letters. A caustic attack on the “American Dream” of materialism, DEATH OF A SALESMAN is a three-act play, centering on the main character, Willy Loman.

At age sixty-three, Willy has been a traveling salesman all his life. Despite his hard work and grueling schedule, the Lomans have always lived on the edge of poverty and Willy has always been an underling in his company. Yet Willy constantly tells himself and his family that the “big break” he deserves is just around the corner. He has raised his two sons, Biff and Happy, to also believe that somehow life has cheated them and insists that one day they will get their due. Linda, Willy’s dutiful wife, lives under the thin veneer of denial that her husband has so long tried to keep from collapsing.
