Black Swan State Theatre Company presents Death of a Salesman by Arthur Miller 4 – 25 May 2013 *5 new shows added by popular demand!* Willy Loman spent his entire life as a travelling salesman chasing his fortune and never succeeding. Now, suffocated by debt, discarded by his boss and losing his grasp on reality, his hopes continue to rest on his son Biff, the golden boy who never lived up to the promise he showed in high school. In an unforgiving present, Willy grasps at the straws of a past he idealises and refuses to let go of false dreams for his son, despite the fact that Biff, who once worshipped his father, has come to reject him. Death of a Salesman is one of the great American plays of the twentieth century, dissecting the country’s obsession with the American Dream and creating one of the most memorable portrayals of a father-son relationship in contemporary theatre. Awards for the play include the New York Drama Critics' Circle Award - Best Play, the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Tony Award for Best Play and Tony Award, Author – Arthur Miller. “Every audience member irrespective of their background, will likely see something of themselves, their fathers, their families and their world in this masterpiece.” The Hollywood Reporter Venue: Heath Ledger Theatre, State Theatre Centre of WA Director: Adam Mitchell Cast: Austin Castiglione, Adriane Daff, Eden Falk, Luke Hewitt, Talei Howell-Price, Josh McConville, Caroline McKenzie, Jo Morris, Ben O'Toole, Igor Sas, John Stanton Duration: Approx. 2 hrs 40 mins [incl. interval] Tickets: Standard $69.50 / Concession $54.50 / Preview $52.50 / Student $29.50 / Student Rush $24.50 / Family (2 Adults & 2 children) $158.00 / Groups of 8+ $53.50 Bookings: Ticketek, ph 1300 795 012, Group 8+ ph 1300 364 001 or email [email protected], website http://premier.ticketek.com.au/shows/show.aspx?sh=DEATHOFA13 More info: www.bsstc.com.au/whats-on/death-of-a-salesman/
