A View From The Bridge
by ARTHUR MILLER
Directed by IAIN SINCLAIR
18 OCTOBER - 25 NOVEMBER [SOLD OUT]
This production was made possible thanks to the support of Jeremy & Sue Bishop, Michael & Prue Williams and Jon Comino.
Italian-American immigrant life colours this searing drama of love and revenge set in 1950's Brooklyn. Eddie Carbone is devoted to his wife Beatrice and his niece Catherine. Then Beatrice's cousins Marco and Rudolpho, having fled the poverty of Sicily, enter the US illegality desperate to find work. As Rudolpho and Catherine fall in love, Eddie's devotion to his niece is no longer touching, but terrifying.
