§ Dramatis Personae The Clerk (m), 30, desk staff at Standish Arms Hotel; The Woman (f), 50, Willy Loman’s lover.
§ Synopsis “Waiting for him (as she’s done every year) at the Standish Arms Hotel, Willy Loman’s lover tries to figure out why he hasn’t arrived and attempts to engage the disgruntled desk clerk in her fantasies.
§ Comment “The classic American tragedy, Death of a Salesman, is seen through the eyes of Willy Loman’s lover. • Two locales need to be indicated: the lobby of the hotel and the woman's room. This needs only minimal scenery (i.e., a desk for the lobby, a chaise for the room). • ‘Little Death of a Salesman’ was produced at the Boston Women on Top Festival in March 2000.”
