In February 2022, audiences can experience one of the greatest American tragedies of the 20th Century. Written in 1948, Arthur Miller’s prescient examination of the pressures of modern life still finds deep resonance for us all as capitalism seems to be crumbling around us.

“Willy (Loman) was representative everywhere, in every kind of system…because of what he wanted. Which was to excel, to win out over anonymity and meaninglessness, to love and be loved, and above all, perhaps, to count.” – Arthur Miller

Led by one of Australia’s finest theatre actors, Paul English in the role of Willy Loman, Hearth Theatre have attracted an ensemble of dedicated and diverse talent including Margot Knight, Kevin Summers, Charlie Cousins, Ross Dwyer, Tas Dimitrakakis, Berk Ozturk, Kim Denman, Anthony O’Connell, Juan Fernando Monge, Rebekah Carton and Vivian Nguyen.
