Written by quintessential American dramatist Arthur Miller, A View from the Bridge is as timeless as the Greek tragedies on which it is modeled and as contemporary as today's headlines. Eddie Alfieri, a local lawyer, tells the story of Longshoreman Eddie Carbone who lives in the Red Hook section of Brooklyn with his wife Beatrice and her orphaned niece Catherine, whom they have brought up as their own daughter. Into the household come two of Beatrice's cousins from Italy who enter the country illegally to find work on the waterfront. Eddie's love for his niece turns to obsession when the younger of the Italian brothers, Rodolpho, and Catherine strike up a friendship that blooms into romance. Soon Eddie's conflicted feelings lead him to betray his family's trust and in a desperate attempt to split them up before they can marry, he betrays both cousins to the Immigration Authorities. This timeless American tragedy touches upon the themes of loyalty, justice, family, homosexuality and betrayal.
