Three years later, the lives of Larry's family and friends continue in a small American town. His brother, Chris, wrestles with his feelings for Larry's former fiancée. His mother waits with a desperate hope for her lost son to return. And his father, a former employee in the aircraft industry, harbours a dark secret - a secret which could have terrible consequences.
Arthur Miller's play is a theatrical masterwork, and when the curtain rises, we will find out how people are bound together - by family, hope, truth and responsibility - and how people can fall apart.

About the author

Arthur Miller, geb. 1915 in New York, verbrachte seine Kindheit in Brooklyn und Harlem. Er studierte Publizistik, Anglistik, Literatur- und Theaterwissenschaften. Der große Börsenkrach und die anschließende Weltwirtschaftskrise, deren soziale Auswirkungen er in den 30er Jahren u.a. als Hafen- und Landarbeiter direkt zu spüren bekam, sind Schlüsselerlebnisse für sein Leben und Schreiben. Die Verarbeitung des Themas in 'Death of a Salesman' bringt ihm 1949 Weltruhm. Er erhielt u.a. 1949 den Pulitzerpreis, 2002 den Prinz-von-Asturien-Preis und 2003 den Jerusalem-Preis. 2005 verstarb Arthur Miller.
