DEATH OF A SALESMAN
By Arthur Miller

THE PLAY
In the post-war era of the late-40s, there was unbridled optimism and excitement. America was the most powerful and prosperous nation the world had ever seen. The American Dream was available to everyone. But wait! A 34-year old playwright had other ideas. Arthur Miller felt that the dream could become reality only in a life lived with honesty and integrity. So what happens when Willy Loman refuses to admit his mistakes and balance the books in his heart?
