Betrayal and desire on the waterfront

Rose Byrne returns to STC in A View from the Bridge, a play that, by her own account, is one that changed her life and sparked a lifelong love affair with theatre. Appearing alongside her is Emmy Award-winner Bobby Cannavale, her real-life partner and one of the US’s most respected screen and stage actors.

Rose plays Beatrice who, together with her husband Eddie, has forged a family with her orphaned niece Catherine on the tough streets of the Brooklyn waterfront. When Beatrice’s cousins, Marco and Rodolpho, arrive from Sicily, desperate for a better life, she takes them in without hesitation. But as Catherine falls for Rodolpho, jealousy and desire boil over in an uncontrollable and devastating sequence of events.

After 2016’s lauded production of All My Sons, Kip Williams returns to Arthur Miller with an arresting new production.

Exploding the tensions between honour, duty and desire, this enduring 1956 classic by one of the twentieth century’s great dramatists strikes at the heart of the American dream.
