Death of a Salesman

In 1949 New York, Willy Loman, a travelling salesman the wrong side of middle-age, returns home from another fruitless trip, to a loyal but depleted wife and two fully-grown sons who seem destined for lives of similar disappointment. Arthur Miller's tragic Twentieth-century drama is a damning indictment of the American Dream, relentlessly peddled to a nation wilfully and desperately blind to its fallacy.
