Marianne Elliott and Miranda Cromwell's production stars Wendell Pierce as Willy Loman alongside Sharon D Clarke as Linda Loman, Arinzé Kene as Biff and Martins Imhangbe as Happy.


The piece follows the African American Loman family in the '40s New York, as Willy struggles to face the truth of how his and his son's lives have panned out.

WhatsOnStage's reviewer gave the show five stars, calling it a 'vital, truthful and vivid production'.
