A View from the Bridge by Arthur Miller

About the event
Set in an Italian-American neighborhood on the Brooklyn side of the Brooklyn Bridge, the play follows the unraveling of Eddie Carbone following the arrival of two of his wife’s cousins from Italy. Eddie is obsessed with his wife's niece, Catherine, and threatened by her relationship with one of the cousins. As the events of the play unfold, Eddie loses the ability to manage his feelings for Catherine. The action is narrated by Alfieri, who was raised in 1900s Italy but is now working as an American lawyer, thereby representing the "Bridge" between the two cultures.
