Death of a Salesman: Royal Shakespeare Company

A few weeks ago I went to Stratford-upon-Avon to see the play ‘Death of a Salesman’ (by Arthur Miller) at the Royal Shakespeare Company. I don’t often like theatre and didn’t really understood the play when I read it, but seeing it was awesome!

The tickets were super expensive for adults or to get seats that were very close to the stage but as a student, I only paid £5 which is incredible!

In the land of the free, each man is in charge of his own destiny. Willy Loman knows and cherishes this truth. After a life of honest hard work, it’s Willy’s birthright to retire with his loving wife and watch his two athletic, handsome sons continue his legacy. 

Yet as old age begins to take hold and retirement beckons, Willy’s dream seems further away than ever. Decades of graft have somehow failed to translate into wealth and his eldest son refuses to follow the path his father has chosen for him. As actions buried in his past re-surface, Willy struggles to reconcile his long cherished dream with the life he has actually lived. (rsc.org.uk)

The actors were stunning, the ending was amazing and very powerful! If you get the chance, go see it at the RSC! Real musicians (mostly flautists) were playing at some points during the play, that was so cool.

I didn’t have much time to walk around Stratford-upon-Avon but it seemed really nice. I hope I’ll be able to go back one day. It looks so English!
