A View from the Bridge
Author(s): Arthur Miller
Company: Chichester Festival Theatre with Headlong, Octagon Theatre Bolton and Rose Theatre
Every man’s got somebody that he loves, heh? But sometimes… there’s too much. You know? There’s too much and it goes where it mustn’t.
On the Brooklyn waterfront, where the fierce passions of ancestral Sicily linger, the orphaned Catherine falls for her handsome, newly arrived cousin Rodolfo—an illegal immigrant.
Their romance is encouraged by her aunt Beatrice but viewed with revulsion by her uncle, Eddie Carbone, who harbours an unspoken desire.
As tensions rise, their story spins inexorably beyond control.
