Performances of “Death of a Salesman” are scheduled to run through Sunday, April 14 at Scottsdale’s Desert Stages Theatre mainstage.

The family-friendly adaptation of the 1949 Pulitzer Prize and Tony award-winning play focuses on an aging and unsuccessful salesman, Willy Loman. During the last days of his life, the play gives audiences a glimpse of how a desire to obtain the “American dream” deprived a man of his family and business partners, according to a press release.

Showtimes for “Death of a Salesman” are at 7:30 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, and Sundays at 2 p.m., according to the release.

The show is directed by Virginia Olivieri, who also directed the plays: “Glengarry Glen Ross” and “Agatha Christie’s Verdict,” noted the release.

Desert Stages Theatre, 7014 East Camelback Road, Suite 0586 in Scottsdale, is delivering more than 18 productions this season, and offering several season ticket packages starting as little as three shows, added the release.
