ELLIOTT & Harper Productions and Cindy Tolan have announced new cast members joining Wendell Pierce and Sharon D Clarke in the West End transfer of the highly acclaimed, sold-out Young Vic production of Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman.

Directed by Marianne Elliott and Miranda Cromwell, it runs at the Piccadilly Theatre from October 24, 2019 to January 4, 2020.

Two of Britain’s hottest young actors join the company to play Willy Loman’s sons. Sope Dirisu will play Biff Loman, with Natey Jones (pictured) as Happy Loman.

Sope Dirisu’s theatre credits include the title role in Coriolanus for the RSC, Ogun in The Brothers Size for the Young Vic and Mohammed Ali in One Night in Miami for the Donmar Warehouse. His screen work includes Black Mirror for Netflix and the upcoming film Gangs of London.

Amongst Natey Jones’ recent theatre credits are Small Island for the National Theatre, Doctor Faustus, Don Quixote and The Alchemist for the RSC and Tina: The Tina Turner Musical in the West End.

Victoria Hamilton-Barritt joins the company to play The Woman and Jenny and Carole Stennett joins to play Miss Forsythe.
