Tragi-Comedy Death of a Salesgirl from Bootleg Theater
Bootleg Theater (Los Angeles, CA)
You’ve probably heard of Arthur Miller’s classic American play Death of a Salesman. Well, forgot about all of that. This is Death of a Salesgirl, a new and unique interdisciplinary play written by and starring Patricia Scanlon (Hildy Hildy). It’s about a “Salesgirl” breaking in a new territory, literally and metaphorically, as she limps doggedly forward, despite being crippled by a strange nostalgia and a stone in her shoe. It’s a play about how we might not be able to cure the past, but we just might be able to cure ourselves.
