The End of the Road


Life hasn't been kind to Willy Loman. His adult sons live in his house and appear to be allergic to making anything of themselves, his older brother was a successful diamond merchant, but his own job as a traveling salesman is grinding him down to the nub. The American Dream is still out there, but Willy just can't catch it. Arthur Miller's Death of a Salesman is one of the big guns of the American theatrical canon, a thoughtful and thought-provoking meditation on the small gap between failure and success. Insight Theatre Company closes out its season with this classic drama, with John Contini stepping into Willy's scuffed shoes. Death of a Salesman is performed at 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday (September 11 through 21) at the Heagney Theatre (530 East Lockwood Avenue, Webster Groves; 314-556-1293 or Tickets are $15 to $30.
Thursdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m.; Sundays, 2 p.m. Starts: Sept. 11. Continues through Sept. 21, 2014
