Brooklyn dockworker Eddie Carbone and his wife Beatrice agree to take in two Sicilian relatives – illegal immigrants trying to find work. Hardworking Marco is sending money home to his wife and sick children. Rodolpho is chasing the American dream, but finds being different makes him an outsider. When Rodolpho falls for Eddie’s niece Catherine, the protective uncle must confront his own feelings and his jealous mistrust threatens to expose an unspeakable secret.
Arthur Miller’s modern masterpiece A View from the Bridge confronts the American dream in a stripped-back, muscular drama that simmers with tension and explodes with passion. We might be in 1950s Brooklyn, but the themes of family, loyalty, immigration and justice are as relevant for contemporary Australia as ever before.
In the hands of award-winning director Iain Sinclair (The Beast), whose 2017 Sydney staging for Red Line Productions created a chorus of critical acclaim, this brand new production promises to be a riveting and emotionally-charged night at the theatre, featuring Steve Bastoni (Wentworth), Daniela Farinacci (Lantana) and Damian Walshe-Howling (Janet King).
Iain Sinclair was part of the original creative team of Red Line Productions’ A View from the Bridge in 2017. MTC acknowledges RLP’s development of Iain’s vision for the RLP production.
