Arthur Miller's classic play A View from the Bridge will be performed at Tobacco Factory Theatres in Bristol from Wednesday 18th April to Saturday 12th May 2018.

 

One of the most important theatrical pieces ever written by one of the 20th century's most influential and greatest dramatists, A View from the Bridge is as timely and relevant now as it ever was.

The story follows Eddie Carbone, a hardworking, decent man who has raised his niece Catherine like a daughter. However, things are made more complicated by the arrival of his wife's cousins, and all manner of struggles, anxieties and tensions come to the fore when Catherine falls for one of them.

 

Still as provocative and insightful as when it was first written, A View from the Bridge is a compelling exploration of a multi-facted man trying to the deal with the unravelling of his world through the prism of Millers' passionate, intense dialogue that reveals a society valuing different people in different ways.
