by Arthur Miller
Directed by Artistic Director, Jared Sakren
The great American classic that simmers with tension and explodes with passion!
“...An intensely absorbing drama, sure of itself every step of the way."—New York Times
Considered one of the great American classics, Arthur Miller’s passionate drama A View From the Bridge, like his Death of a Salesman, examines the promises and failures of the American Dream.
An award-winning play about Italian-American 1950s immigrant life, it’s the retold story of Brooklyn longshoreman Eddie Carbone—a man who holds family and honor above all else—yet betrays them both.
Locked in a fading marriage, Eddie becomes increasingly infatuated with his nubile niece he’s raising as a daughter. When she falls for one of her illegally immigrated cousins, whom Eddie has invited to stay in the family home, their lives are set on a tragic course.
Staged in a raw, stripped-down style by director Jared Sakren (West Side Story, Gypsy), the production leaves the riveting words of Miller to speak for themselves.
