Death of a Salesman: An Asian American Staged Reading

Selected date

Sunday August 21

Selected time

2:00 PM  –  5:00 PM

Arthur Miller’s iconic play revolves around traveling salesman Willy Loman, who cannot understand how he has failed to achieve success and happiness. The probing drama reveals how Loman’s relentless quest for the “American Dream” has kept him alienated from his wife, his sons, and his friends. A thrilling and deeply revelatory tragedy, Death of a Salesman is an enduring classic of American theater.

This unique staged reading, directed by Michael Miraula and produced by Tadamori Yagi, will feature a predominantly Asian American cast. Through non-traditional casting choices, the reading will attempt to explore minority relations within the larger context of mainstream white America in the late 1950s.
