Death of a Salesman by Arthur Miller
Young Vic, London, directed by Marianne Elliot & Miranda Cromwell
DESIGN Anna Fleischle  |  LIGHTING Aideen Malone  SOUND Carolyn Downing


“But here they’re staged with a kinetic Lynchian surrealism, the memory figures surrounding Willy sped up, heightened and jerky. He crashes from one reminisce to another - sometimes with a near indistinguishable intrusion from the present - falling through his own crumbling mind with a terrifyingly vertiginous pace as Anna Fleischle’s dreamy, hypermobile set rises and falls around him. It’s stunning.” Time Out

 "Anna Fleischle’s design is dominated by skeletal door and window frames that float in the air like one of Alexander Calder’s mobile sculptures." The Guardian

"Miller's original title, The Inside of His Head, has rarely felt so faithfully mirrored in the staging choices. Adding to this sense of mental fragmentation is Anne Fleischle's artfully minimal set, an exploded house interior with free-floating window frames and furniture suspended high above the stage."
