Together they are the beating heart of their Italian-American neighbourhood, but when Beatrice falls for the charming immigrant Rodolpho the family bonds that unite them quickly begin to unravel.

Eddie's deep-seated jealousy brings his forbidden desires to the brink of exposure, threatening to destroy everything he has built and raining tragedy on their close-knit community.

One of Arthur Miller's greatest plays

Arthur Miller was one of the most influential playwrights of 20th-century, picking up a Pulitzer Prize for Death of A Salesman, plaudits for The Crucible, All My Sons and The Misfits, and even marrying the film icon Marylin Monroe.

A View From The Bridge is regarded as a timeless masterpiece that explores the themes of family bonds, personal honour, and barely repressed sexual passion.

What the theatre critics say...

Daily Telegraph: ★★★★ "Dominic West is a revelation in a gripping revival of Arthur Miller's masterpiece"; The Observer: "Dominic West is terrifc. Kate Fleetwood is beautifully subtle and shrewd. Nia Towle makes a lovely passionate debut"; Evening Standard: "Dominic West absolutely delivers. Fine support from Kate Fleetwood"; Sunday Times: "Oh boy that Dominic West can act... greatness looms"
