A View from the Bridge
Wednesday 28 August 2019
By Arthur Miller.
Following its smash-hit, sold out season at Sydney’s Old Fitz Theatre, this award-winning, critically acclaimed production lands on their stage. Arthur Miller’s A View from the Bridge has a special place in the canon of English-speaking theatre, electrifying audiences around the world since it first premiered in 1955. Director Iain Sinclair’s 2017 production swept the Sydney Theatre Awards and was universally praised for its raw power and breathtaking performances.
1950s Italian-American immigrant life colours this searing drama of love and revenge set in the shadow of the Brooklyn Bridge.
Arthur Miller’s tragic masterpiece confronts the American dream in a stripped-back, muscular drama that simmers with tension and explodes with passion. It might be 1950s Brooklyn, but the themes of family, loyalty, immigration and justice are as relevant for contemporary Australia as ever before.
