From the Brooklyn Bridge, Miller looks down on the busy port of Red Hook and gives us a truthful illumination of the lives of the immigrant dock workers scratching an existence in the ghetto, separated from the affluence of Manhattan, just along the river, where the fortunate live ‘The American Dream’.

This story of Eddie Carbone, his family and neighbours is based on a real-life incident that took place in the early 1950s but its themes are as relevant today as then: integration and social tensions of mass immigration; homophobia; corruption; repressed sexual desires; honour and manhood – and that’s just for starters!

The play premiered in 1956 and has been one of Miller’s most popular plays ever since. There was Lumet’s film in the 60s; then Scarlett Johansson on Broadway; Con O’Neill (Manchester Royal Exchange) and Mark Strong (Young Vic/NT) – powerful, award-winning performances that have engaged, thrilled and haunted audiences over recent years.

In its setting, Eddie’s story may be seen as a tragedy of the common man but its timeless messages apply to all mankind and therefore we cannot help but identify with him as he makes his inexorable descent into loss of self and violence.
