'Death of a Salesman' in Beijing [9781472592088]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
In 1983 Arthur Miller was invited to direct Death of a Salesman at the Beijing People's Theatre, with Chinese actors. This was an entirely new experience for Miller and for the Chinese company, most of whom had never even heard of 'life insurance' or 'installment payments'. Miller had forty-eight days of rehearsals in which to direct his play and, while there, he kept a diary. This book tells the fascinating story of Miller's time in China and the paradoxes of directing a tragedy about American capitalism in a Communist country, and includes photographs throughout taken by Inge Morath during the rehearsal process. First published in 1984 and re-issued in a new edition in 1991, 'Death of a Salesman' in Beijing is here given a new context as the production and process is investigated against the backdrop of twenty-first century China and its theatre, in a new introduction by Claire Conceison, Professor of Theater Studies at Duke University.
