One of the greatest works in the theatrical canon, Arthur Miller's Death of a Salesman is an excoriating critique of the American Dream. The winner of seven Tony Awards and the Pulitzer Prize upon its 1949 Broadway debut, this powerful work takes place over the course of a single day and centers on the character of Willy Loman, an aging traveling salesman who battles against his growing insignificance by escaping into a world of fantasy.
