Salesman in Beijing

Listen listen listen to Arthur Miller read from his account of a production of Death of a Salesman on BBC Radio 4's Afternoon Reading. It is just wonderful to hear him describe these actors taking part in a production that would have been unthinkable during the worst years of the Cultural Revolution. It's the stuff of theatre, of lives. Especially the description of the two actors who spent years playing cards because there was nothing else to do who play cards as Charlie and Willie. Very moving.
