A VIEW FROM THE BRIDGE
The State Theatre Company of South Australia
Written By: Arthur Miller
Directed By: Kate Champion
Arthur Miller’s classic exploration of family and honour in 1950s Brooklyn comes roaring onto the Adelaide stage.
When Italian migrants Marco and Rodolpho arrive on longshoreman Eddie Carbone’s doorstep, Eddie’s connections to his culture and community are put to the test. The personal and the cultural come into conflict as Eddie tries to balance his responsibility to the men with his fierce connection to his wife Beatrice and her niece Catherine. As a tentative romance blossoms between Catherine and Rodolpho, Eddie’s complex web of love, loyalty and dark attraction begins to unravel around him.
A landmark work from one of the greatest playwrights in history, the play burns with Miller’s searing social critique and richly-drawn characters. A View From The Bridge is a timeless classic that is as thrilling and passionately devastating as it has ever been.
