Willy Loman spends an increasing amount of time in the past, on the border of fantasy and reality. He no longer earns money, and there are no reserves. His sons are good-for-nothing layabouts with big plans that he himself planted in their heads. He also had big plans – money, praise and happiness – but all it amounted to was 300 monthly instalments on the bank’s payment plan. Dreams remained dreams – and they devoured the little future that remained.
Premiere: 3 June, 2016
"Gálffi plays the man of the house, whose life is a lie from beginning to end. He pursues (even on the day of his death) the grand dream he has instilled in his sons – that he could get somewhere, rise above the rest and live comfortably, having earned fame, riches and esteem. But not at all! He is simply a salesman, a cog in the machinery, who must toil from dawn till dusk, desperately trying to pay off his debts. Then, when he is hopelessly worn out (less in body than in soul), the young boss, whom he remembers as a child, dismisses him.
Mácsai ’s direction is not sentimental; he does not want us to be moved. He does not want us to be able to cry, just as Loman’s wife cannot, even at his funeral. He wants us to see clearly how the world operates with its pitiless ″survival of the fittest”. Still, there must be something to cling to. Confronting ourselves and others without constructing a false self-image, realising how we are truly seen by those around us, gazing into the mirror – the result is a cleverly rational acting style that leads us to the tragedy, step by logical step."
