DEATH OF A SALESMAN runs Sept. 22-Oct. 2

DEATH OF A SALESMAN
Presented by Wright State University
Sept. 22-Oct. 2
Dayton

Dayton Most Metro review |

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.

DANCING AT LUGHNASA runs Sept. 23-Oct. 1

DANCING AT LUGHNASA
Presented by The Village Players
Sept. 23-Oct. 1
Fort Thomas

DANCING AT LUGHNASA is the story of five unmarried sisters eking out their lives in a small village in Ireland in 1936. We meet them at the time of the festival of Lughnasa, which celebrates the pagan god of the harvest with drunken revelry and dancing. Their spare existence is interrupted by brief, colorful bursts of music from the radio, their only link to the romance and hope of the world at large. The action of the play is told through the memory of the illegitimate son of one of the sisters as he remembers the five women who raised him, his mother and four maiden aunts.
