Set in the late 1940s, Willy Loman is a salesman living in New York City with his wife, Linda, where he has lived in the same house for the last twenty-five years. Now on his last legs, failing at his job, dismayed at the failure of his sons to live up to his expectations and tortured through the jealousy of success and happiness that's pursued from his neighbour Charley, and his son Bernard.
Creating a harrowing journey for Willy as he spirals into a well of regret, reminiscence and a scathing indictment of the ultimate failure of the American dream that he was hoping to create 25 years ago, alongside the empty pursuit of wealth and success that he leads.
Willy reaches close to his hopes until he makes a decision that affects his lifeline and the mindset of everyone else in his life forever...
Miller won the Pulitzer Prize for his work, which he described as “the tragedy of a man who gave his life, or sold it” in pursuit of the American Dream.
