DAVIDSON – The Davidson Community Players production of Arthur Miller’s acclaimed play “Death of A Salesman” has begun at 10-day run at the Armour Street Theatre.

Considered by many to be the best piece of drama written by an American in the 20th century, the play won both the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the Tony Award for Best Play in 1949 and has been performed the world over since then. This powerful play is a commentary on the American Dream told through the psychological chaos and memories of the protagonist.

Performances are scheduled through April 3 at the Armour Street Theatre in Davidson. Reserved tickets start at $15 and can be purchased at davidsoncommunityplayers.org or by calling the box office at 704-892-7953.
