Mark Strong, Nicola Walker and Emun Elliot star in Arthur Miller’s dark and passionate play.
Arthur Miller had Greek tragedy in mind when he wrote A View from the Bridge, based on a story a lawyer friend had told him about two illegal immigrants being shopped to the authorities by the uncle of a girl who had become engaged to one of them.
That uncle becomes the rough-house longshoreman Eddie Carbone, fretting in the shadow of the Brooklyn Bridge in Red Hook, Brooklyn, New York, obsessed with his niece Catherine's attachment to one of the Sicilian brothers – she's "walking wavy" and her skirt's too short – while his wife, Beatrice, tries to stem his rising tide of jealousy.
Ivo Van Hove (All About Eve) directs Mark Strong (The Imitation Game; Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy) and Nicola Walker (The Split, Last Tango in Halifax) in this ‘magnetic, electrifying, astonishingly bold’ production (Evening Standard).
An encore screening of the 2015 broadcast from Wyndham’s Theatre, London.
Duration: 2 hours, no interval.
