America's greatest playwright weaves "a vivid, crackling, idiomatic psychosexual horror tale." --Frank Rich, The New York Times
In A View from the Bridge Arthur Miller explores the intersection between one man's self-delusion and the brutal trajectory of fate. Eddie Carbone is a Brooklyn longshoreman, a hard-working man whose life has been soothingly predictable. He hasn't counted on the arrival of two of his wife's relatives, illegal immigrants from Italy; nor has he recognized his true feelings for his beautiful niece, Catherine. And in due course, what Eddie doesn't know--about her, about life, about his own heart--will have devastating consequences.
"The play has moments of intense power. . . . Miller plays on the audience with the skill of a master." --Clive Barnes, New York Post
