Set in late 1940s Brooklyn, New York, the two-act tragedy, DEATH OF A SALESMAN, follows the central character of Willy Loman, who is experiencing an epic battle against time, exhaustion and encroaching mental and psychological debility.  He desperately must find a way to reconcile his life and the deep pain it has caused his family.
In 1949 Arthur Miller won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, as well as the Tony Award and the New York Drama Critics’ Award for Best Play for DEATH OF A SALESMAN. Today the play is still considered by many critics as one of the greatest plays of the 20th century.

Emmanuel Deleage, Producer of the Show and Executive Director of CASA 0101 Theater, said:  “We are extremely pleased to present Arthur Miller’s DEATH OF A SALESMAN, an American classic in Boyle Heights with a primarily Latino cast.  This masterpiece of American literature explores the quintessential battle taking place in one way or another inside the heads of each one of us:  the pursuit of success, the difficulty of accepting reality, the love of family, the struggle to force the hand of destiny.  It’s perhaps the first time this play is being presented in Boyle Heights.”

The late Arthur Miller once said, “Success and prosperity are better attained by facing the challenging situations of the reality of American life rather than romanticizing on fanciful dreams.”  Miller defined a tragic hero as “a character who is ready to lay down his life, if need be, to secure one thing – his sense of personal dignity.”  For Miller, tragedy was driven by “Man’s total compunction to evaluate himself justly.”
