A NOTE FROM THE ARTISTIC DIRECTOR
THE MASTER BUILDER
This production marks a homecoming for two extraordinary actors: Charles S. Dutton and Kimberly Scott, both graduates of Yale School of Drama who last appeared at Yale Rep nearly 25 years ago in the world premiere of Joe Turner’s Come and Gone by August Wilson. They lead an extraordinary company, many of whom you have seen at Yale Rep before. As a director, it has been a great joy to spend the last weeks and months with these remarkable artists to discover the universal truths of Arthur Miller’s timeless—and timely—masterpiece. I am thrilled that you are here to share it with us!

ANNOUNCING yALE REP’S 2009–10 SEASON
In an increasingly digitized and commoditized world, the live experience of the theatre—its immediacy, arguments, contradictions, exhilarations, longings, and sensations—is more precious than ever. You have let us know this through your increased attendance at our theatre and through your impassioned dialogues with our artists, each other, and me. The astonishing range of letters and e-mails I have received in response to plays at Yale Rep this year has reminded me again and again that our audiences are deeply committed to the value and power of theatre in their own lives and in the community. As this season draws to a close, I am delighted to share with you our plans for 2009–2010: extraordinary new works and classic plays brought to life by some of the most accomplished and daring artists in the American theatre—some whose work you may know well already, and others coming to work at our theatre for the first time. Yale Rep resident director Evan Yionoulis (Richard II) will kick off the season with a brand new production of Henrik Ibsen’s The Master Builder. Danai Gurira, the OBIE Award-winning co-author of In the Continuum, returns with her new play Eclipsed. Acclaimed playwright Rinne Groff and Oskar Eustis, artistic director of The Public Theater, make their Yale Rep debuts with the world premiere of Compulsion. Christopher Bayes, whose choreography is featured in the hit Broadway production of Alfred Hitchcock’s The 39 Steps, directs Carlo Goldoni’s commedia dell’arte masterpiece The Servant of Two Masters; and Robert Woodruff, fresh off this season’s Notes from Underground, returns to direct The Battle of Black and Dogs, a haunting thriller by French writer Bernard-Marie Koltès. And there’s still one more play that we’ll announce shortly. I hope you’ll take a moment here at the theatre, or online when you get home, to renew your commitment and subscribe to next year’s season. (Details can be found opposite this page.) Thank you for your tremendous support, enthusiasm, and many stirring and thoughtful responses this season. I look forward to seeing and hearing from you again soon, and all of next year!

WRITING WHAT HE KNEW No one could have guessed that Arthur Miller would become one of America’s great playwrights when he was born in 1915. The son of a successful tailor and factory owner, young Arthur lived a comfortable life on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. His family was a close-knit one, with mother and father, and other relatives, working in the garment business. But like so many other Americans at the time, the Millers would face hardships in the Great Depression. After losing their business, they moved to a small house outside Manhattan, and Arthur Miller began to think of himself as a Brooklynite—an identity that would influence his writing throughout his career. Miller’s tenacity and penchant for competition developed in his Brooklyn years. His love of sports in high school would lead to a football injury that precluded his service in the military during World War II. After graduating, he applied to colleges that would nurture his passion and talent for writing, but the University of Michigan—his first choice—twice rejected him. Only after Miller wrote a personal appeal imploring the dean to reconsider was he admitted, enrolling in 1936. At Michigan, he justified the dean’s confidence by earning two undergraduate awards, in addition to numerous citations for his playwriting. In 1940 Arthur Miller returned to Brooklyn with a bachelor’s degree, a new wife, and not much else. As a member of the working class, he took assorted jobs to provide for his young, growing family; he was a writer for the Federal Theatre Project and a ship fitter’s assistant at the Brooklyn Navy Yard. But he had always felt that

THIS IS AMERICA
his personal writing projects were his most important work. Finally, after some success with radio plays, he made his Broadway debut with The Man Who Had All the Luck in 1944. Although the play
Arthur Miller sets Death of a Salesman, his exploration of the elusiveness of the American Dream, in the quintessentially American city of Brooklyn. (Actually, the term “city” only properly applies to Brooklyn until 1898 when it officially became incorporated as one of New York City’s five boroughs.) Brooklyn occupies Kings County on eighty-one square miles at Long Island’s western tip and is connected to neighboring Manhattan by three bridges, one tunnel, fourteen subway lines, one ferry service, and a pugnacious wariness of being consumed by the cosmopolitan bully across the East River. We recognize Brooklyn from images of its high-stooped brownstones and eponymous bridge, as the setting for numerous sitcoms from The Honeymooners to The Cosby Show, and as the home of Brooklynese, a much-imitated accent popularized by Hollywood through surly WWII soldiers and down-ontheir-luck street toughs.
closed after just four performances, Miller, used to bouncing back after adversity, was undaunted. His second stab at Broadway, All My Sons (1947), was a major success: Miller was able to quit his jobs and focus on his writing full-time in his Roxbury, Connecticut, home, paid for by the fruits of his theatrical labor. In 1949, Miller followed All My Sons with Death of a Salesman, the play that won him
Brooklyn’s many distinct neighborhoods offer snapshots of the American melting pot. The ethnic communities of Brooklyn were for decades synonymous with their neighborhoods’ names—some still are. There have long been Jewish residents in Brighton Beach and Flatbush; African Americans moved into Bedford-Stuyvesant and Brownsville after WWI; Italians still congregate in Bensonhurst; and Vinegar Hill near the Manhattan Bridge used to be known as Irish Town. Though the quiet of these Brooklyn neighborhoods is sometimes disturbed by intense parochialism, the borough is united in its resistance to being ranked second after the more genteel Manhattan. Such pride and doggedness have earned Brooklyn its reputation as the hardscrabble borough of striving families. There’s more space here, and it’s cheaper by the square foot. There are more family-friendly businesses, and fewer skyscrapers blotting out the blue.
the Pulitzer Prize and launched him into the ‘status’-sphere of national celebrity. Still, no matter how much fame, glamour, and gossip surrounded the playwright, he continued to write with an awareness of the times in which he lived, with keen observations on American society. His best work is characterized by his ability to fuse public, social issues with echoes of his own private life. His refusal to name names before the House Committee on Un-American Activities was refigured in The Crucible (1953); the turbulence of his marriage to Marilyn Monroe ignited After the Fall (1964). And, even in Death of a Salesman, Arthur Miller was writing what he knew—the pathos, the humor, the poetry, and the humanity of the play resonate profoundly with his own history and his beloved Brooklyn. —DONESH OLYAIE, PRODUCTION DRAMATURG

The first half of the twentieth century saw Brooklyn in ascendance: the Brooklyn Navy Yard brought thousands of workers to the borough during the two World Wars, and new subway lines built in the 1930s made for an easy commute between Brooklyn and Manhattan. A spike in housing construction after WWI expanded the borough’s residences so that by the mid-1920s it surpassed Manhattan as the most populous borough of NYC, a predominance it maintains to this day. Kenneth T. Jackson, a NYC historian, claims that as many as one-quarter of all Americans can trace their heritage to one-time Brooklyn residents. Because of its role as a way station for such a large portion of the population, Brooklyn boasts a number of iconic American landmarks. Ebbets Field—home to the Brooklyn Dodgers from 1913 to 1957—bordered diverse neighborhoods in central Brooklyn until it was demolished to make way for high-rise apartments. Prospect Park, a 19th-century city-beautification project designed by the same architects as Manhattan’s Central Park, spans 585 pacific acres just blocks away (the architects considered Prospect Park the more successful project). Coney Island, at the south tip of the borough, was home to such classic amusements as the Cyclone roller coaster and the Steeplechase, and every summer visitors elbowed each other on the boardwalk waiting in line for a Nathan’s hot dog.

Death of a Salesman opens on the Loman’s home in Brooklyn in 1949. The small, single-family unit is described by Miller in a stage direction as crowded on all sides by the “towering, angular shapes” of new apartment buildings. Mid-century housing complexes are found all over Brooklyn, and Miller never specifies in which neighborhood the Lomans live; his play evokes an almost mythic Brooklyn. But then, if Willy’s dream is the American Dream, his hometown seems to be America itself. Miller’s lack of specificity in setting may be precisely the point. A Brooklyn native himself, Miller once quipped, “No one can know Brooklyn, because Brooklyn is the world.” —MICHAEL WALKUP, PRODUCTION DRAMATURG 13
