Chun & Moriaz open HPU Art Gallery Season
by Kristine Miyamura, staff writer
   

HPU theatre presents Arthur Miller’s acclaimed play, Death of a Salesman, directed by Joyce Maltby, on Nov. 8. Miller’s dark realism captures the behind-closed-doors life of an American family struggling to make ends meet in the late 1940s. The play was a resounding success, winning the Pulitzer Prize, as well as the 1949 Tony Award for Best Play.

Representing the failed American dream is traveling salesman Willy Loman, played by Don Pomes, a hard working father of two sons. Biff and Happy Loman are played by Scot Davis and Joshua Gulledge, respectively. Biff never lived up to his father’s expectations and has been unable to hold a steady job. Younger son Happy has a steady job, but lacks any real purpose. Wife Linda Loman, played by Sylvia Horman-Alper, is the one person who supports Willy despite his wandering mind.

The supporting cast includes Hank Chapin as next-door neighbor Charlie, Chris Veatch as Charlie’s son Bernard, Brad Powell as Willy’s older brother Ben, and Russell Motter as Willy’s unconcerned boss Howard Wagner.

Death of a Salesman will run through Dec. 8 at the Hawai‘i Loa campus theatre. Admission is $5 for HPU students; $10 for seniors, military, students, and HPU faculty/staff; and $14 general admission. For additional information and reservations call 375-1282.
