MILLER, Arthur Asher [1] (1915–2005) was an American playwright and essayist.

He was one of the strongest and most vociferous supporters of the Anti-Apartheid movement, although he did not participate in the Cultural Boycott, his plays still being performed in the country, often initially by Leonard Schach, later by the state funded Performing Arts Councils. His first masterpiece, Death of a Salesman, was the first outside production to be performed at the new Reps Theatre in 1952 (by the Sarah Sylvia Company). Miller visited South Africa in the late Eighties, as the transition was being negotiated and gave lectures at a hall in Fordsburg. (Tucker)
