Character descriptions follow. Please note ages referenced are “stage ages”. If the actor can play in that range, they will be considered.

Willy Loman An aging salesman.  Actor can play anywhere from 50's to 60's.  He suffers from depression and anxiety as a result of his dissipating career, his estranged relationship with his oldest son, Biff, and his guilt over an extramarital affair. As the play progresses, Willy loses the ability to distinguish between the present and his memories of the past.

Linda Loman Willy Loman's wife. Same age range as WIlly. She is Willy's champion and takes it upon herself to reconcile her family. She will protect Willy at all costs, even if she must perpetuate his fantasies and deny his suicidal behavior.

Biff Loman The Lomans' older son. Actor can play 30's to 40's Biff has been estranged from Willy for over 15 years, during which time he has not been able to hold a steady job. Biff is the only member of the family who knows about Willy's affair, and he resents his father bitterly.

Happy Loman The Lomans' younger son. Actor can play 30's to 40's. Obviously, must be able to play a little younger than Biff.  Happy is a womanizer driven by his sexuality. He works as an assistant but exaggerates his position and his authority.

Uncle Ben Willy's older brother.  Actor  should be able to play 60's to 70. He made a fortune in the African jungle by the time he was 21 years old. He once offered Willy a job in Alaska. Ben appears in the play only in Willy's memories and fantasies.

Charley A long-time acquaintance of the Lomans. Actor must be able to play 50's to 60's Charley supplies Willy with a weekly loan once Willy is put on straight commission, and he repeatedly offers him a job. Charlie is a true friend to Willy, even though Willy is jealous of him. Charley appears in Willy's memories, as well as in the actions of the present.

Bernard Charley's son. Same age range as Biff. He provided Biff with answers while they were in high school and attempted to help Biff study so that he would graduate, even though Willy and Biff would criticize him. He is a successful lawyer. Bernard appears in Willy's memories, as well as in the present.

The Woman Willy's former lover, 20's to 40, with whom he had an affair many years ago in Boston. Biff discovered the affair when she came out of the bathroom while he was in the room. She appears only in Willy's memories and fantasies; however, as the play progresses, Willy has difficulty distinguishing between his memories of the Woman and his memories of Linda.

Howard Wagner Willy's current boss. 30's to 40. He put Willy on straight commission prior to the play's beginning, and later he fires him. Howard is a businessman, unaffected by the facts that Willy worked for his father and named him as a child.

Jenny Charley's secretary.- Any age range

Stanley A waiter. 20's to 40's

Miss Forsythe and Letta Young prostitutes. Can play 20's
