Rediscover one of the greatest plays of the 20th Century as Hearth Theatre presents an intimate new production of Arthur Miller’s heartbreaking masterpiece.
Death of a Salesman is regarded as one of the best contemporary plays ever written. First appearing on Broadway in in 1949, it ran for a record 742 performances winning the Pulitzer Prize for best Drama and Tony Award for Best Play.

Hearth Theatre have ensured the work is in tune with contemporary culture which is communicated effectively with theatre goers.
