Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman returns to the West End in 2019, produced by Elliott Harper Productions, starring Sharon D Clarke and Wendell Pierce. After a sell-out run at the Young Vic, Death of a Salesman transfers to the Piccadilly Theatre from October 2019.

Miller’s play is about a man who returns from an unsuccessful business trip to find his two adult sons living at the family home. Business has been tough for Willy as of late, and its takes its toll on the 69-year-old, who drifts in and out of daydreams and hallucinations throughout the play.

Directed by Marianne Elliott, whose recent triumphant production of Company in the West End opened to universally positive reviews and Miranda Cromwell as co-director, the play will be led by Wendell Pierce as Willy Loman, and Sharon D Clarke as Linda Loman.

Death of a Salesman is at the Piccadilly Theatre from 24th October, with tickets on sale now.

Wendell Pierce is an actor known for his roles in TV series such as Suits and The Wire. On stage, he has appeared in plays such as Brothers from the Bottom, Queenie, The Piano Lesson, Serious Money and The Boys of Winter. He also produces theatre, taking Bruce Norris’ 2010 play Clybourne Park to Broadway where it was nominated for four Tony Awards.

Sharon D Clarke is an Olivier Award-winning actress known for her roles as Killer Queen in We Will Rock You, and Oda Mae Brown in Ghost the Musical. Recently, she won the Olivier Award for best actress in a musical for her lead performance in Caroline, or Change  at the Playhouse Theatre, following previous engagements in Chichester and the Hampstead Theatre. She has also won an Olivier Award for her role in The Amen Corner at the National Theatre in 2014.

Death of a Salesman premiered at the Morosco Theatre in 1949, winning the Tony Award for best play as well as the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. It’s been revived on Broadway four times, thrice winning the Tony for best revival. It was last seen in the West End at the Noel Coward Theatre directed by Gregory Doran in May 2015.

Our Review of Death of a Salesman

5/5

I previously welcomed this ferociously fine revival of Arthur Miller's 1949 Pulitzer and Tony-winning play when it originally opened at the Young Vic in May - and now that it has deservedly transferred to the West End's much larger Piccadilly Theatre, which has more the double the number of seats, it's worth seeing all over again if you've already seen it. And there's no excuse to miss it if you've not; but hurry: it's only here for eight weeks. Read more

5/5

This review of Death of a Salesman is from the Young Vic production. The play will transfer to the West End later in 2019, click here to find out more.  Read more
