The Community Players of Salisbury will bring a still-timely American classic, Arthur Miller’s “Death of Salesman,” to the stage for five performances beginning Friday, Jan. 26.
The story revolves around the last days of Willy Loman, a failing salesman who is lamenting what has become of his life. Through a series of tragic soul-searching revelations of the life he has lived with his wife, his sons and his business associates, the audience sees how his quest for the "American Dream" kept him blind to the people who truly loved him.
Directed by Matt Bogden, the show will be performed in Guerrieri Hall at Wor-Wic Community College at 8 pm. Friday and Saturday, Jan. 26-27, and Friday, Feb. 2; and 2 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 27, and Saturday, Feb. 3.

The Community Players of Salisbury has been a part of the Salisbury community for more than 70 years. In 1937, a group of 26 charter members began the process, and the Players were organized under the Recreation Division of the Works Progress Administration in May of 1938, according to their website. Arthur Richardson headed the project and elected Denmead Kolb the theater’s group’s first president. Their first play, “The Singapore Spider,” directed by Arthur Richardson, was presented in May of 1938.
In 1964, the format changed dramatically with the introduction of a major musical production to open the season, according to the Players’ website. The first musical, “Guys & Dolls,” was presented in November of that year, and a musical production has been part of the season format ever since.
Don’t miss the chance to see a true classic of the American stage that still rings true today as the Community Players present “Death of a Salesman.”
