Joining the previously announced Antony Sher as Willy Loman and Alex Hassell as his son Biff, the company will also include Harriet Walter as Willy's wife Linda and Sam Marks as Willy and Linda's younger son Happy.

They are joined by Paul Birchard (Older Waiter); Ross Green (Stanley); Emma King (Miss Forsyth); Miranda Nolan (Letta); Sarah Parks (The Woman); Guy Paul (Uncle Ben); Joshua Richards (Charley); and Brodie Ross (Bernard), with further casting to be announced.

Walter, who was most recently seen on the London stage in the title role of an all-female Henry IV at the Donmar Warehouse (and who previously played Brutus there in Julius Caesar in a production that transferred to New York's St. Ann's Warehouse), was last at the RSC as Cleopatra in Antony and Cleopatra in 2006. She has appeared on Broadway in the transfers of the RSC production of All's Well That Ends Well in 1983 and the Donmar's Mary Stuart in 2009, for which she was Tony-nominated for Best Actress in a Play.

The production is directed by artistic director Gregory Doran, with designs by the newly appointed RSC Director of Design Stephen Brimson Lewis. Lighting is by Tim Mitchell, the music is composed by Paul Englishby, and sound is by Martin Slavin.
