Actors Theatre of San Francisco
EXTENDS Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman
January 5 – January 20, 2007
Death of A Salesman, Arthur Miller’s masterpiece about the failure of the American Dream, has been EXTENDED at the Actors Theatre of San Francisco. Directed by Christian Phillips and Marcella Pethes, Arthur Miller’s “tragedy of the common man” is a gripping portrait of a life based on false values. Both an indictment of a materialistic society and a probing view of family relationships, the play has been lauded for its mining of the links between individual lives and public events, and between present and past experience. At the center of this timeless story is Willie Loman (Keith Phillips). Who, while adhering to the illusive American ideal puts unrelenting pressure on his sons, Biff (Carl Miller) and Happy (Tim Meehan), to achieve at all costs, never realizing that neither he nor they can ever live up to these illusions. The sons’ struggle to win their father’s love as well as to forge their own independent lives, and their mother, Linda Loman’s (Margel Kauffman) attempts to mediate this battle, is a universal story that continues to move audiences world-wide.
