With the American Dream seemingly in his grasp, Willy Loman refuses to admit his mistakes and balance the books in his heart. Redtwist’s uniquely intimate space fixes the microscope squarely into Willy’s soul as he fights for the dream while living a lie.

In the post-war era of the late-40s, there was unbridled optimism and excitement. America was the most powerful and prosperous nation the world had ever seen. The American Dream was available to everyone. But wait! A 34-year old playwright had other ideas. Arthur Miller felt that the dream could become reality only in a life lived with honesty and integrity. So what happens when Willy Loman refuses to admit his mistakes and balance the books in his heart?
