As the most divisive American Presidential Election campaign in living memory plays out before our eyes.
Arthur Miller’s classic, A View From The Bridge, has never felt so prescient.
Miller – once husband to Marilyn Monroe and, arguably, one of America’s greatest playwrights – confrontationally lays bare the idea of the ‘American Dream’.
New York dockworker Eddie Carbone welcomes his wife’s illegal immigrant cousins from Sicily to the land of the free to his home. But as he discovers the growing relationship between his niece and the new arrivals, Eddie’s most desperate, deepest secret surfaces, revealing a passion that leads to the darkest of betrayals.
Acclaimed British actor Mark Strong (Kingsman: The Secret Service; The Imitation Game) plays Eddie, in an award-winning performance that helped bring avant-garde Belgian director Ivo van Hove to the attention of the mainstream.
Visceral, emotional, innovative – this is a not-to-be-missed opportunity to watch the staging of a classic, thoroughly reinvented.
