Death of a Salesman

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.


““he is a very convincing Willy Loman and his performance is heartbreaking at times, he seems to find a new sadness in the role and he achieves the mixture of pity and terror so necessary for tragedy”
“a powerful performance”


“What a treat"
“With a superb stylish contemporary set, this seventy year old play is far from dated as the basic dynamics still ring true.”


“An extremely good portrayal of Arthur Miller’s tragic character”


“Nicholas Woodeson’s Willy, scraping together from his scrambled wits the high price he must pay for that brutal piece of capitalist wisdom, is a sight to break the hardest of hearts”

“Poignant and profound"

“a profoundly compassionate, surprisingly delicate portrayal”



“definitely a must-see”



“the real deal”

“Woodeson, with garrulous bonhomie and a marble smile, delivers a star turn Pigott-Smith would surely have been proud of himself”
