Death of a Dream' has been written as a sequel to Arthur Miller's classic play 'Death of a Salesman' and examines the two ‘dreams’ the play evolved around – the American Dream, and Willy Loman’s personal dream. Willy’s businessman grandson, Bill, much like his grandfather is still hoping to crack the big time. Bill’s adult son Art, is a drug addict and lives at home; his stepdaughter Suzy, is a successful New York executive and his wife Carol, is financially involved in the business. They gather for Thanksgiving weekend, 2015, and struggle with the resulting catastrophic events.
