Arguably the twentieth century's finest playwright, Arthur Miller's landmark works include Death of a Salesman and The Crucible. The Man Who Had All The Luck, Miller's first play to be produced, premiered in New York in November 1944. The first UK production was in April 1960. This publication will coincide with the opening of the Donmar Warehouse production on 28 February 2008. Blessed with good fortune, David Beeves' life can't get much better. But as the lives of those around him begin to crumble, he starts to question his own destiny. Arthur Miller's great American fable follows one man's struggle to change his fate, and asks the question - is there such a thing as too much luck?

Review:

you can feel Miller exploring the theatrical terrain he was to make uniquely his own Guardian It is illuminating as a taster of themes that would return in Miller's work - father-son and brother-brother relationships, disappointment, the dubiousness of the American Dream, the hollow happiness of wealth - but here it also comes out as a piece about spiritual unease, about the deep disquiet of a man who cannot discern purpose or justice in life Financial Times Arthur Miller was 24 when he wrote this rich, passionate and compassionate play ... it should rank with Miller's greatest. Sunday Times Listen to the dialogue: no other American dramatist has this feel for the ordinary talk of ordinary people, or the knowledge of what they do. This is more than a writer's craft, it is a psychological and moral openness to humanity, an act not of imitating, but of sharing. Sunday Times 'It's the Arthur Miller play that slipped through the net... As well as featuring his trade-mark dialogue - compelling, funny, full of ideas - it is also a grand experiment in which the playwright reverses the usual journey of a tragic hero.' Mark Fisher, Guardian, 20.1.09
