Synopsis


"I don't say he's a great man …but he's a human being, and a terrible thing is happening to him.


So attention must be paid.


He's not to be allowed to fall in his grave like an old dog.


Attention, attention must finally be paid to such a person."


Award-winning director Marianne Elliott brings her unique vision to one of the greatest plays of the twentieth century, seen through the eyes of an African American family.


Wendell Pierce (The Wire, Suits, Selma) makes his UK stage debut as Willy Loman, with Olivier Award-winning Sharon D. Clarke as Linda Loman and Arinzé Kene (Misty, Been So Long) as Biff Loman.
