DEATH OF A SALESMAN –
SANKOFA THEATRE COMPANY
CO-PRESENTED BY SANKOFA THEATRE COMPANY & THE GALLO CENTER REPERTORY COMPANY
The Central Valley’s only African American theatre company turns its attention from the August Wilson plays it has performed to much acclaim in recent seasons to another giant of the American stage: Arthur Miller. In this co-presentation with the Gallo Center Rep, Sankofa Theatre Company tackles what some critics consider to be the greatest play of the 20th century. Miller’s Death of a Salesman is a two-act tragedy told through a montage of memories, dreams and arguments of the protagonist Willy Loman, a traveling salesman who is disappointed with his life, and appears to be slipping into senility. Now see this masterwork told from the perspective of a Black family experience.
