Possibly Arthur Miller's most enduring creation, "Salesman" has played across the globe with immense success - it even sparked a version for China, adapted by Miller himself, called Salesman in Beijing.

A study of disillusionment, failure and self-deception, the play sees Willy Loman, a little man trying to live the "American Dream", slowly being beaten into the realisation it's a hollow ideal. Battling with his sons, Biff and Happy, he fights against a system apparently always at odds with him, to provide for his family and become the successful salesman he believes himself to be.

The company is fielding a strong cast headed by John Matthews who gave a memorable performance as Eddie in its 1999 Rose Bowl winning production of Miller's A View From The Bridge.
