Sher’s Death of A Salesman in West End transfer

Antony Sher in Death of a Salesman

Gregory Doran’s production of Arthur Miller’s 1949 Pulitzer Prize-winning play Death of a Salesman is to transfer to the Noël Coward Theatre in London’s West End, following its run in the Royal Shakespeare Theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon.

The entire Stratford cast, led by Antony Sher and Harriet Walter, will transfer for a ten week run from May 9..

RSC artistic director, Gregory Doran, said: “Death of a Salesman is, without doubt in my mind, the greatest American play of the 20th Century and it has taken its rightful place, alongside Shakespeare, on our main stage in Stratford-upon-Avon, to mark the centenary of Arthur Miller’s birth.

“I am delighted we are able to share this production with London audiences at the Noël Coward Theatre.”

The production joins three other RSC shows in London this spring.
RSC/ETT’s touring production of A Mad World My Masters plays at the Barbican for two weeks from 29 April; Tom Morton-Smith’s new play Oppenheimer is currently at the Vaudeville Theatre until May 23 and
Matilda The Musical continues to play to packed houses at the Cambridge Theatre.

The RSC will also open the Shakespeare jubilee year of 2016 in London, with King and Country: Shakespeare’s Great Cycle of Kings at the Barbican.

Gregory Doran’s productions of Richard II, Henry IV Parts I & II, and Henry V will play together for the first time, running in repertoire from November 7-January 24.
