Death of a Salesman Goes to Beijing

What on earth possessed Arthur Miller to come to China in 1983 to direct his quintessentially American masterpiece, Death of a Salesman? And what ripples did this landmark production cause around the world? Join Leanna Brodie and Jovanni Sy, the playwrights of Salesman in China, University of British Columbia Professor Siyuan Liu and others in this discussion of the historical, political, artistic, and personal context around the real events that inspired their play.
