Arthur Miller’s Classic, A View from the Bridge

Seen recently in New York in the Tony-award winning production by the Young Vic theatre, A View from the Bridge is one of Arthur Miller’s most powerful plays.  The play focuses on Eddie Carbone, a longshoreman by trade, in the Red Hook section of Brooklyn during the 1950s.  Eddie is confident of his place in the working-class neighborhood he calls home. That life changes when his wife’s cousins, illegally smuggled into the country, hide out in his home.  When his niece Catherine falls in love with one of the cousins, the secrets, suspicions, and jealousies that haunt the family and the community erupt into tragedy. Miller’s powerful and passionate play is as relevant and as moving as ever.
