DEATH OF A SALESGIRL

November 2012

You’ve probably heard of Arthur Miller’s classic American play Death of a Salesman. Well, forgot about all of that. This is Death of a Salesgirl, a new and unique interdisciplinary play written by and starring Patricia Scanlon (Hildy Hildy). It’s about a “Salesgirl” breaking in a new territory, literally and metaphorically, as she limps doggedly forward, despite being crippled by a strange nostalgia and a stone in her shoe. It’s a play about how we might not be able to cure the past, but we just might be able to cure ourselves.

Written by Patricia Scanlon

REVIEWS

The Los Angeles Beat: “…something you’ve never seen before”

Stage and Cinema: “Its fresh and innovative use of space coupled with its inspired use of integrated multimedia make the already powerful piece that much more immediate to today’s attention deficient audience.”
