By investing Willy’s wife Linda with angry bitterness rather than meek protest, Nancy Linehan Charles reverses conventional notions about this long-suffering character. The actress’ tentative delivery sometimes mitigates against the power of her portrayal, but it is fascinating, and often painful to watch her lash out at sons Biff and Happy rather
than blame her misguided husband.
