Seating chart & directions
Acknowledged as one of the great classics of the twentieth century, Arthur Miller's play A View from the Bridge, opens at the Duke of York’s Theatre for a limited season from January 2009. This electrifying and deeply moving play proved to be a milestone in American theatrical history: it will be rediscovered in a new production starring Ken Stott and directed by Lindsay Posner.
Dockworker Eddie Carbone has made a good life for himself and his wife and niece in 1950's Brooklyn. As a former immigrant himself, Eddie is happy to house and protect his wife's Italian cousins who arrive illegally in pursuit of the 'American Dream'. What Eddie doesn't know is that this act of kindness will have a shattering effect on his whole life, and the lives of those he loves.
Arthur Miller is arguably American's finest playwright (whose other landmark works include The Crucible and Death of a Salesman). A View from the Bridge will be an unmissable event.
