The UK tour of Death of a Salesman will continue at the Exeter Northcott Theatre in May. Following the recent passing of Tim Pigott-Smith, Nicholas Woodeson will take over the role of Willy Loman.
Royal & Derngate’s Artistic Director James Dacre and Chief Executive Martin Sutherland released the following statement this morning –
“Following the tragic death of Tim Pigott-Smith OBE on April 7, and after close consultation with the acting company, creative team and our touring partners we have decided to proceed with our production and tour of Death of a Salesman. Whilst rehearsals resume, all scheduled Northampton performances will be postponed. The tour will start at Cambridge Arts Theatre before visiting Bath, Malvern, Exeter, Edinburgh, Truro, Guildford and Oxford and returning to Royal & Derngate, Northampton in June.
We are grateful to all our colleagues and partners for their ongoing support and to our audiences for their patience and understanding as the team here has worked hard, under such difficult circumstances, to achieve this outcome.”
