Death of a Salesman

by Arthur Miller

at the Raven Theatre

6157 N. Clark St., Chicago

raven-deathThis week’s Theater Thursday event will offer free drinks and light appetizers before the show as well as a talk-back with the actors and crew following the production.Willy Loman, Miller’s quintessential Everyman, is a traveling salesman who spends his entire life chasing a dream driven by his misguided mantra, "Be liked and you will never want". After years of pouring all his energy and resources into his older son Biff, whom he is convinced will rise to greatness with his Adonis-like features and athletic prowess, Willy is faced with the crushing realization of the utter failure of his pursuit for a better life.  One late spring night Willy returns to his Brooklyn home from an aborted sales trip to New England, and over the course of the next 24 hours Arthur Miller takes us on a journey through the past and present of a man whose life is reeling beyond his control.
Event begins at 7:30 p.m.
Show begins at 8 p.m.

For reservations call 773.338.2177 and mention "Theater Thursdays."
