Sunriver Stars Community Theater (SSCT) is pleased to partner with director Joshua Billeter to produce “Death of a Salesman,” July 19-27, at Unity Spiritual Community in Bend. Arthur Miller’s Pulitzer Prize winning tragedy, tells the story of Willy Loman – an everyday, aging, traveling salesman – as he struggles for success in search of the dying promise of the American Dream.

“I think this show is important because it tackles the subject matter of the American Dream,” Billeter said. “On the surface this family has it all, a house, a car and is able to make ends meet; but there is more than meets the eye once we dig into this family”.

“Death of a Salesman” will show at 7:30 p.m. July 19-20and 25-26, plus a closing matinee at 2 p.m. July 27. The show will run approximately two and half hours with a 15-minute intermission. Refreshments and a cash bar will be offered. Tickets are $20.

“This season we wanted to reach out to theater goers in the Bend-area to introduce them to Sunriver Stars,” said Stars founder and artistic director Victoria Kristy. “We hope the extended community will recognize what we have to offer and attend or participate in future productions.”

The story deals with some heavy subject matter, with the internal battle of Loman, the father and main character of the play.

“He is not only struggling to make ends meet, but he is struggling physically and mentally throughout the play, and it affects more than just him – every character has a purposeful intention with what they do,” Billeter said. “It was once called the best play ever written, and my intention is to make this quote come to life and make it a must-see for all audience members.”
