A classic drama, Miller’s A View from the Bridge confronts the American dream in a darkly sinister and passionate tale. Set in Brooklyn, the play sees Eddie Carbone welcome his Sicilian cousins into the land of freedom. But when one falls in love with his niece, the cousins soon discover that freedom comes at a fierce price. When Eddie’s jealousy exposes a deep, unspeakable secret, the repercussions bring about the ultimate betrayal.
A stellar cast is led by Mark Strong as Eddie Carbone. Strong is well-known for his multiple Hollywood blockbusters, including Sherlock Holmes, The Imitation Game and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy. Olivier Award-winning actress Nicola Walker (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time) reprises her role as Beatrice, alongside Phoebe Fox as Catherine. Further cast members include the original Young Vic cast of Emun Elliot, Luke Norris and Michael Gould, as well as Richard Hansell.
Van Hove’s production of A View from the Bridge features design and lighting design by Jan Versweyveld, with sound design by Tom Gibbons and costume by An D’Huys. An electrifying and compelling revival of Miller’s classic text, this critically acclaimed production is not one to be missed. After an extended run at the Young Vic, Van Hove’s A View from the Bridge plays a limited season at Wyndham’s Theatre.
