The late Arthur Millers most famous work and arguably the greatest American play of the 20th century, the Pulitzer Prize-winning Death of a Salesman is showing at the Lyric Theatre throughout most of 2005. Taking place in New York in the 1940s, it is the tale of an ageing salesman called Willy Loman who faces up to his failures, at work and at home, in a monster critique of the perils of the American Dream. Every wrong turn is replayed and reflected in the ills that beset the next generation. Directed by Robert Falls and starring Brian Dennehy in his West End debut, this production started in 1998 and won numerous awards on Broadway in 2000. Tickets cost from 18.50 to 43.50.
