Death of a Salesman Reviews
"Moving, heartfelt and thought-provoking …
Director Sue Wylie stays true to the core of the story whilst transforming the respected narrative into a means of self-reflection. She has done an exceptional job, as she takes on a profound text that can be difficult to pull off."
Georgina Tselekidis, Weekend Notes
"This fine performance deserves full houses every night; you will not see as good a production of this play for a very long time."...
Fran Edwards, Glam Adelaide
"I don’t think anyone who sees it will be disappointed. This is a first-rate production."
Janice Baily, Adelaide Theatre Guide
"Therry has a strong production with some excellent performances. Death of a Salesman is a passionate and powerful play which is tricky to stage given its switching time and dream states, but Sue Wylie has done a solid job in bringing it to life."
Shelley Hampton, Stage Whispers
Nightly from Wednesday at 8 pm
Season ends Saturday, 27th August with two performances (2 pm and 8 pm)
Bookings via link below or ring the Therry Box Office from midday to 5 pm Tuesday and from midday ‘til late Wednesday to Saturday: 8410 5515.
Death of a Salesman by Arthur Miller
Director: Sue Wylie
Willy Loman dreamed of being a successful salesman with material success and freedom. He thinks the way to achieve success is to be well-liked, which is also the way he teaches his sons. Through flashbacks, we find that Willy believes success is indicated by being rich and well-liked – and that demonstrates “being successful”. Because of this, Willy thought that money would make him happy ...
This 1949 masterpiece is Arthur Miller's most famous work, winning the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the Tony Award for Best Play … a cornerstone of American literature.
