“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. . . A small man can be just as exhausted as a great man.”

Considered one of the greatest plays of the 20th century and as relevant today as ever, Arthur Miller’s classic drama tells the story of a worn out salesman, Willy Loman, who is crumbling under the weight of the American dream. It’s 1949 in Brooklyn, and during a pivotal 24 hours, Willy tries to reconcile the optimism of his youth with his unfulfilled dreams. Memory, truth, and lies intermingle, as he searches for the moment his life took a wrong turn. What betrayal undermined his relationship with his wife and destroyed the adoration of his sons? Professor Martin Shell will play Willy, acting alongside his students in this emotion-gripping drama, winner of the 1949 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and Tony Award for Best Play.
