Information for Death of a Salesman at Royal & Derngate, Northampton (Play).
WE BELIEVE THIS TOUR HAS BEEN EITHER CANCELLED OR RE-SCHEDULED AFTER THE DEATH OF TIM PIGOTT-SMITH - MORE DETAILS WHEN WE GET THEM
Veteran salesman Willy Loman is used to spending his life 'riding on a smile and a shoeshine', but recently things haven't been so good. He seems to have lost his golden touch; his grown-up sons, Biff and Happy, no longer idolise him as they used to and he is haunted by missed opportunities and a trouble past. His wife Linda is struggling to aid her increasingly disturbed husband, as she tries to hold the family together and keep Willy from descending further into desperation. But as the truth of Willy and his sons' imperfect past begins to unravel, Willy starts to lose faith in the two things he believes in: his family, and, in Miller's words, his need 'to leave a thumbprint somewhere on the world'. Death of a Salesman burst upon the international scene in 1949 and won the Drama Critics' Circle Award, the Tony Award and the Pulitzer Prize, becoming a benchmark for modern theatre. Originally starring Tim Pigott-Smith who sadly died April 2017 and Pamela Mile who had withdrawn due to breaking a bone in rehearsal - her role was taken by Tricia Kelly.
