Death of a Salesman brings classic American tale to EPAC stage September 4 – 20

"'Salesman' offers gut-wrenching, life-changing ride"

Laura Knowles, Lancaster Online

Death of a Salesman is the quintessential American play. It focuses on the final days of aging salesman Willy Loman and his haunting reflections of his frustrating pursuit of the elusive American Dream.

Kelli Curtin, Theatre Sensation

Arthur Miller's tragic tale transcends time and is perhaps more relevant today than it was when it made its Broadway premier in 1949. As many struggle to recover from the Great Recession, Willy Loman is watching. Willy's reflection on his own failures will resonate with the struggle many American families face today.

EPAC is thrilled to present this look into the lives of the Loman family. We invite you to take a journey with us as we seek to understand what it means to live and work in this great land we call America. Opening night party at Olde Lincoln House.
