BY Arthur Miller
10 February – 11 April 2015
FOR STRICTLY LIMITED 8 WEEK 2015 SEASON
Mark Strong will lead the cast as Eddie Carbone in the West End transfer of Arthur Miller’s A View from the Bridge the 5 star Young Vic Production directed by Ivo Van Hove. Acclaimed by audiences and critics alike, A View from the Bridge opened at the Young Vic in April 2014 where the production enjoyed an extended sell-out run.
Strong (Twelfth Night, Death of a Salesman) is joined by fellow original cast members Emun Elliott as Marco, Phoebe Fox (As you like it, King Lear) as Catherine, Michael Gould as Alfieri, Luke Norris as Rodolpho and Nicola Walker (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime) as Beatrice and Richard Hansell as Louis in Ivo van Hove’s five star Young Vic production.
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.
“Our Young Vic audiences were in no doubt that this is truly the production of a lifetime. I am thrilled so many more people will share this exceptional experience. We’re delighted to be playing in the West End for the third year in a row, welcoming new audiences to the style and ambition of the Young Vic.” David Lan – Young Vic Artistic Director
