Bundaberg Players' new production, Death of a Salesman.

If you’re after a night of powerful, compelling theatre don’t miss Bundaberg Players’ new production, Death of a Salesman.

Directed by Rebecca Hutchins and Shanyn Limpus, this classic play written by Arthur Miller chronicles the last days in the life of Willy Loman, a man who has spent more than three decades in sales.

Now in his early sixties, he finds his numbers and his mind slipping.

Co-Director Shanyn Limpus said each character contributed to this classic story.

“Arthur Miller’s masterful writing brings each of these characters to life,” Shanyn said.

“We think audiences will want to be part of their story.”

Co-Director Rebecca Hutchins said the actors had given so much of themselves during rehearsals.

“I find myself completely immersed in the story and the actors’ performances,” Rebecca said.

“It will be theatre at its best and we hope all theatre lovers in the region will join us”.

The cast is made up of some of Bundaberg Players’ most experienced actors, as well as some newer to The Playhouse.

Willy Loman is played by Phillip Fresta (a part he has wanted since buying a copy of the play in high school), Tracey Shears plays Willy’s wife Linda, Timothy Greig is Biff Loman, Brayden Rewald is Happy Loman, Paul Burrel as Uncle Ben, Eugene Zanozin is Charley, Ben Edwards as Bernard, Marianne Curran is The Woman, Jacob Treloar the Howard Wagner, Bonny Treloar as Miss Forsythe, Ally Wilson as Jenny/Letta and Kurt Reid as Stanley.

Performances are 7.30pm on Friday 14 and 21 October, Saturday 15 and 22 October and matinee Sunday 16 October at 3 pm.

All shows are at the Playhouse Theatre, 2B Steffensen Street, West Bundaberg with the full house bar open one hour before the show.
