PARTNERING WITH SANKOFA THEATRE COMPANY ON DEATH OF A SALEMAN
Founded in 2012 with support from the Gallo Center for the Arts, the Central Valley's only African American theatre company's mission is to showcase Black history, life and culture through the performing and visual arts.
For the 23/24 Season, Sankofa Theatre Company turns its attention from the August Wilson plays it has performed to much acclaim in recent seasons to another giant of the American stage: Arthur Miller. In this co-presentation with the GCRC, Sankofa tackles what some critics consider to be the greatest play of the 20th century. Miller's Death of a Salesman is a two-act tragedy told through a montage of memories, dreams and arguments of the protagonist Willy Loman, a traveling salesman who is disappointed with his life, and appears to be slipping into senility. Now see this masterwork told from the perspective of a Black family experience.
