Arthur Miller is one of the 20th century’s greatest dramatists and A View From the Bridge is a gripping tragedy that is as powerful and pertinent as ever.
Eddie… I’m not only telling you now, I’m warning you – the law is nature… and a river will drown you if you buck it.
Eddie Carbone is an honourable, hard working man who has raised his niece Catherine like a daughter and loves her like nothing else. When his wife’s cousins arrive from Italy he’s proud to offer them safe harbour, but when Catherine falls for one of them, Eddie’s dark and dangerous struggle begins to surface.
In this fascinating and provocative exploration of a complicated man and the unravelling of his world, Miller exposes a society that values different people in tragically different ways.
We are delighted that A View From the Bridge is the first production directed by our Artistic Director Mike Tweddle for our theatre. It will be part of our inaugural Factory Company season, alongside Adele Thomas’s direction of Macbeth. For this groundbreaking season of dynamic work, Tobacco Factory Theatres will become home to its own ensemble of incredible actors. The season will also incorporate a series of events connecting the productions with our local community, artists and audiences.
