Set in 1940s Brooklyn, Death of a Salesman is the story of Willy Loman, an ageing salesman who's fragile grasp on reality is slipping away. Having worked hard all his life, proud of his ability to sell anything to anyone and to provide for his family, his dreams of becoming a self-made man who makes it big have amounted to nothing and he is cracking under the strain.
Wendell Pierce (The Wire, Suits, Selma)makes his West End stage debut as Willy Loman, with Olivier Award-winning Sharon D. Clarke as Linda Loman.
