Death of a Salesmen

Arthur Miller

Director: Ken Vojtech

The depression of the 1930's was the turning point for an era of history in the United States. The American Dream, that amazing optimism and confidence, was shaken to its very core. Even though Arthur Miller's "Death of a Salesmen" is not set during this Great Depression, the scars are still present as Willy Loman, a sixty-three-year-old salesman is left baffled at his failures. He lives in what is believed to be the greatest country in the world; a country of Manifest Destiny. But therein lies the problem: if every man builds his own path and something goes wrong, where can the fault lie but in himself? "If personal meaning in this cheer leader society lies in success, then failure must threaten identity itself" (intro).

Performance dedicated to Prof. Kevin Kelch and his family.
