This is the American Dream writ as nightmare. The Young Vic’s phenomenal sell-out play arrives in the West End as one of the best plays of the last 12 months. If you weren't lucky enough to catch it at the Young Vic, you should not miss this opportunity.
"I don't say he's a great man…but he's a human being, and a terrible thing is happening to him. So attention must be paid. He's not to be allowed to fall in his grave like an old dog. Attention, attention must finally be paid to such a person." Following her recent award-winning successes on Company and Angels in America, Marianne Elliott co-directs Death of a Salesman with Miranda Cromwell, who worked as Associate Director on both shows. Together, they bring a unique vision to one of the greatest plays of the twentieth century, seen through the eyes of an African-American family.
