DEATH OF A SALESMAN
The critically acclaimed Death of A Salesman has returned once more for the year, After a sell-out run at the Young Vic, it has now taken residency at London Piccadilly Theatre. Without giving too much away Wendell Pierce (Who some of you may know as Zain from American Tv series Suits) is joined by Sharon D Clarke to tell the tale of an unsuccessful business trip to find his two adult sons living at the family home. Business has been tough for him as of recent and its takes its toll on the 69-year-old, who drifts in and out of daydreams and hallucinations throughout the play.
Sound good? Catch it whilst it’s here for a second time round, with performances until 4 Jan 2020.
