Death of A Salesman

23rd May 2017 - 27th May 2017

£12 - £28.56

A Royal & Derngate, Northampton production in association with Cambridge Arts Theatre

Willy Loman is not as young as he once was, and boy is he feeling it. After half a lifetime on the road, this once successful travelling salesman is unable to keep up in a changing workplace; he’s on the brink of unemployment, and he and his wife have got bills to pay. When his drop out son Biff moves home again, Willy decides to give success one last shot. Can he prove to everyone he’s got what it takes?

Widely considered to be one of the greatest plays of the twentieth century, Death of a Salesman is about the cost of not being able to let go of the American Dream.

Directed by Abigail Graham, this major touring revival of Arthur Miller’s Pulitzer Prize winning masterpiece sees Olivier nominee Nicholas Woodeson (The Audience, The Homecoming, Rocket to the Moon) play the iconic central role of Willy Loman.

“Abigail Graham’s Astonishingly well-acted and quietly Devastating Revival”
The Independent on Molly Sweeney

Nicholas Woodeson takes the role of Willy Loman following the tragic death of Tim Pigott-Smith OBE on April 7th. Northampton Royal & Derngate’s Artistic Director James Dacre and Chief Executive Martin Sutherland released the following statement on April 20th: “Following the tragic death of Tim Pigott-Smith OBE on April 7, and after close consultation with the acting company, creative team and our touring partners we have decided to proceed with our production and tour of Death of a Salesman. Whilst rehearsals resume, all scheduled Northampton performances will be postponed. The tour will start at Cambridge Arts Theatre before visiting Bath, Malvern, Exeter, Edinburgh, Truro, Guildford and Oxford and returning to Royal & Derngate, Northampton in June. We are grateful to all our colleagues and partners for their ongoing support and to our audiences for their patience and understanding as the team here has worked hard, under such difficult circumstances, to achieve this outcome”
