TOURING THE UK FROM 4 MARCH – 2 MAY 2015
In celebration of the centenary of Arthur Miller’s birth, the Touring Consortium Theatre Company proudly present a new production of A View from the Bridge, directed by Stephen Unwin with Jonathan Guy Lewis as ‘Eddie Carbone’ and Michael Brandon as ‘Alfieri’. Further casting to be announced. The production will open in Nottingham on 4 March 2015, and then visit Cheltenham, Darlington, Wolverhampton, Bradford, Coventry and Edinburgh.
Set in the dangerous and mysterious world of New York’s Brooklyn harbour in the 1950s, respected longshoreman Eddie Carbone lives with his wife and niece in a tight knit Italian community bound by strong moral codes of justice and honour. When Eddie and his wife welcome two cousins into their home, Marco and Rodolpho, recently arrived from Sicily, the balance of Eddie’s family relationships is dangerously rocked. As the young men seek work, wealth and security they find themselves in a threatening country shimmering with the mirage known as The American Dream.
A View from the Bridge is the fourth Touring Consortium Theatre Company production funded by the Arts Council of England ‘s Strategic Touring Programme. See more at: Theatrecloud.com
