Conventional theatre

Death of a Salesman by Arthur Miller, Ensemble Theatre, Seymour Centre

WILLY LOMAN: Work a lifetime to pay off a house – you finally own it and there’s nobody to live in it.

AUDIENCE MEMBERS OVER THE AGE OF 60 (IE 95% OF THEM, IT WAS A MATINEE): Oh, chortle, chortle chortle chortle.

AUDIENCE MEMBER UNDER THE AGE OF 60: (aside) How expensive were houses in Sydney when this lot bought in? $15,000?

(Later, it is revealed that WILLY LOMAN’s life is EMPTY and his sons are LOSERS and the AMERICAN DREAM is a SHAM. He DIES.)

MRS LOMAN (at the funeral): We were in the clear!

AMOTAO60 (gobbling chips): *gasp* OMG, HOW TRUE *sniffle* *munch* *munch*
