About This Show

This passionate drama about Italian-American immigrant life in the 1950s examines the promise, and failure, of the American Dream. Brooklyn longshoreman Eddie Carbone lives in a tight-knit Italian neighborhood with his wife, Beatrice, and orphaned niece Catherine, whose emerging independence and womanhood disturb him. When two of Beatrice’s impoverished Sicilian cousins enter the country illegally, Catherine falls in love with one of them and agrees to marry. As he desperately tries to keep his family from unraveling, Eddie’s feelings for his niece turn into an obsession he can neither understand nor acknowledge. His actions have far-reaching effects in the community and lead to a climatic confrontation in a tale of love, betrayal and revenge.

A View from the Bridge is presented as part of the Arthur Miller Festival and performs in repertory with Death of a Salesman.
