VIEW FROM THE BRIDGE, A


  • View from the bridge new



Genre: Drama

Author: Miller, Arthur

A modern classic, the central character is a longshoreman who, though of limited intelligence and articulacy, is an admirable man. When two of his wife’s Italian cousins are smuggled into the country, he makes room for them in his home. Gratefully they move in with his family, including the teenage niece whom he has brought up and whom he has come to love, or so he thinks, as a daughter. When one of the illegal immigrants falls in love with his benefactor’s niece, the kind and loving uncle suddenly becomes violently opposed to this romance, an opposition founded on a far too intense love for his niece. The stage is set for tragedy.
