HAMILTON – The Palace Players are proud to present Death of a Salesman at 8 p.m. May 3 and 4 at the The Palace Theater in Hamilton.
“The Palace Theater is really proud to again present a Player’s Production, and especially work with the director, Alessandro Trinca,” said Artistic Director and Producer Patricia von Mechow. “It is a production parents can relate to ... how we want the best for our children.”
Death of a Salesman is about one man’s struggle to live the American Dream, and pass this ideology on to his sons, hoping the concept will live on forever. It is mostly told from the point of view of the protagonist, Willy, and his previous memories as they are revealed to the audience, sometimes during a present day scene. Willy is tired of the long work hours, lack of respect and recognition by the new, younger breed of his clients, and the realization that he and his sons just might be ordinary. His loss of reality, personal anguish, and love for his sons leads him to commit the ultimate sacrifice.
