A View from the Bridge

18 January - 20 January
A View from the Bridge

Written by Arthur Miller

Eddie Carbone is a longshoreman and a straightforward man, with a strong sense of decency and of honour. For Eddie, it's a privilege to take in his wife's cousins, straight off the boat from Italy. But, as his niece begins to fall for one of them, it's clear that it's not just, as Eddie claims, that he's too strange, too sissy, too careless for her, but that something bigger, deeper is wrong, and wrong inside Eddie, in a way he can't face. Something which threatens the happiness of their whole family. Eddie's jealous mistrust exposes a deep, unspeakable secret – one that drives him to commit the ultimate betrayal.

Cheltenham College's Drama Scholars present Arthur Miller's classic domestic tragedy, a story of desire, honour and justice in 1950's Brooklyn, in which Miller confronts the reality of the American dream. This is the College's debut Scholar's Play, A View From the Bridge providing an opportunity to showcase the talents of some of the College's highest artistic achievers, in a rare production open to the public.
