Death of a Salesman Transfers from Belvoir to Theatre Royal
Belvoir’s sold-out production of Death of a Salesman will transfer to the Theatre Royal for two weeks from 23 October 2012.
‘We have been overwhelmed by the audience’s response to Death of a Salesman. People are queuing from 7am to buy day seats and standing room and we are thrilled to have this opportunity to meet the demand,’ said Belvoir’s General Manager Brenna Hobson.
Despite first opening half a world away in 1949, Death of a Salesman is speaking to a modern Australian audience in a new and revealing way. In an age of uncertainty, it speaks directly to the heart of the lived experience in a post-industrial world.
Death of a Salesman is one of the finest plays of the modern canon. Written by Arthur Miller in 1949 it won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the Tony Award for Best Play. It is widely seen as Miller’s indictment of capitalism and the American Dream. Yet at its heart, Death of a Salesman is the story of a man past his prime, struggling with his failings and the dashed hopes that his sons would achieve more than he has.
