RSC's Death Of A Salesman transfers to the Noël Coward Theatre in May

It has been announced that the Royal Shakespeare Company’s production of Death Of A Salesman will transfer to the Noël Coward Theatre in May to coincide with centenary of Arthur Miller’s birth.

Starring Antony Sher and Harriet Walter (pictured right), the play will open on 13th May (previews from 9th May) for a limited run until 18th July 2015. The show is directed by the RSC’s Artistic Director Gregory Doran.

The entire cast currently appearing in the production in Stratford-upon-Avon will transfer with the production. Death Of A Salesman follows Shakespeare In Love which closes at the Noël Coward Theatre on 18th April.

In the land of the free, each man is in charge of his own destiny. Willy Loman knows and cherishes this truth. After a life of honest hard work, it's Willy's birthright to retire with his loving wife and watch his two athletic, handsome sons continue his legacy.

Yet as old age begins to take hold and retirement beckons, Willy's dream seems further away than ever. Decades of graft have somehow failed to translate into wealth and his eldest son refuses to follow the path his father has chosen for him. As actions buried in his past re-surface, Willy struggles to reconcile his long cherished dream with the life he has actually lived.
