'Death of a Salesman'

PORTSMOUTH — The Pulitzer Prize-winning drama by Arthur Miller is being produced for the first time at The Players’ Ring in Portsmouth, directed by Dan Stowell and Kaitlyn Huwe. The two previously directed 12 Angry Men at The Players Ring in 2012.

Death of a Salesman takes a sharp-eyed look at the American nuclear family trying to get by in an America where the dream of making a name for oneself by hard work, personality, and gumption, is dead, in an era of economic dislocation. Willy Loman, a traveling salesman, has poured his life into his family and his job, and at the end of his career, is not seeing the life he imagined. He starts to become unhinged, having hallucinations of his dead brother, replaying old memories and even plotting out his own death for the insurance money. His two grown sons, Biff and Happy, move back home, and in trying to help, only exacerbate the Willy’s problems. This tragic family doesn’t realize their dysfunctions and the direness of their situations, for they are Lomans, and Lomans are not a dime a dozen, but salesmen, and a salesmen must remain optimistic if they are to pluck the diamonds from the jungle.

Performances will be held February 14 through March 2, Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00 p.m., Sun., February 16 and 23 at 7:00 p.m. and Sun., March 2 at 2:00 p.m. at The Players’ Ring, 105 Marcy Street in Portsmouth.

The cost is $15.00 general admission, $12.00 for members, students and seniors. Tickets can be purchased online at, or reserved by calling 603-436-8123.
