Following his critically acclaimed performance as King Lear, Don Warrington returns to the Royal Exchange to play Willy Loman in Arthur Miller's Pulitzer Prize-winning play.
“Work a lifetime to pay off a house. You finally own it, and there’s nobody to live in it.”
Willy Loman is an ordinary man, he’s the New England man, he’s well-liked. For thirty-six years he’s been on the road, paying his way and one day he’s going to come good. When his son Biff returns home, suddenly things are looking up. Because you reap what you sow, right?
Winner of the Pulitzer Prize For Drama and Tony Award for Best Play, DEATH OF A SALESMAN is considered one of the greatest plays of the 20th century. Don Warrington (Death in Paradise, King Lear) plays Willy Loman, directed by Royal Exchange Artistic Director Sarah Frankcom (Happy Days, Our Town) in this extraordinary and devastating classic about the downfall of the American Dream.
