Death of a Salesman” in Leeds‏

Just back from seeing this wonderfully spare production at the West Yorkshire Playhouse. Very much stripped to its essentials. Nothing is on that stage that doesn’t need to be there and the result is an extraordinarily concentrated focus on the characters. Lex Shrapnel plays “Biff” and ranges from childhood adoration of his father through total disillusionment to a final acceptance of who and what he is. Brilliant. I was delighted to see that Tom Hodgkins is also in the cast as “Charlie ” the long suffering, indeed only, friend of Willy Loman. Another surprise was that Christoper Ettridge, a member of the millennium Henry VI/Richard III company, is playing “Uncle Ben”. The show is on until May 29th http://www.wyp.org.uk/events/list_events.asp
