A View From The Bridge
Extra matinee just added on Wednesday, March 11
Presented by The Touring Consortium Theatre Company
By Arthur Miller
Starring Jonathan Guy Lewis and Michael Brandon
In celebration of the centenary of Arthur Miller's birth, the Touring Consortium Theatre Company proudly present A VIEW FROM THE BRIDGE.
Set in the dangerous and mysterious world of New York’s Brooklyn harbour in the 1950s, respected longshoreman Eddie Carbone lives with his wife and niece in a tight knit Italian community bound by strong moral codes of justice and honour.
When Eddie and his wife welcome two cousins into their home, Marco and Rodolpho, recently arrived from Sicily, the balance of Eddie’s family relationships is dangerously rocked. As the young men seek work, wealth and security they find themselves in a threatening country shimmering with the mirage known as The American Dream.
One of Arthur Miller’s masterpieces, this gripping and passionate drama ranks as one of the great classics of our time; a powerful and deeply moving play that crackles with raw emotion.
Jonathan Guy Lewis stars as Eddie. A stalwart of British TV drama his credits include Soldier, Soldier, London's Burning and Coronation Street. He is joined by television favourite Michael Brandon (Dempsey & Makepeace and Episodes).
