Death of a Salesman

Written by Arthur Miller
Directed by Rubén Polendo
A Theater Mitu Collaboration

Held hostage by their past, a family grapples with failure, worth and a world closing in around them. In this hyper-theatrical production, human beings become objects, music carries the memory of days long gone, and a life is reduced to a mortgage. Theater Mitu’s staging of Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman explores a landscape of unrealized hopes and asks what happens when you are written out of the American Dream.
