A View From The Bridge - West End

Mark Strong as Eddie Carbone in A View from the Bridge.

We are pleased to announce the West End transfer of A View from the Bridge  with an incredible cast led by Mark Strong. Running for 8 weeks only, don’t miss this “magnetic, electrifying, astonishingly bold” production which sold out before it even opened at the Young Vic last spring.

Arthur Miller confronts the American dream in this dark and passionate tale. In Brooklyn, longshoreman Eddie Carbone welcomes his Sicilian cousins to the land of freedom. But when one of them falls for his beautiful niece, they discover that freedom comes at a price. Eddie’s jealous mistrust exposes a deep, unspeakable secret – one that drives him to commit the ultimate betrayal.
