Lancaster Footlights to stage Arthur Miller's "A View from the Bridge"

John Freeman

“He was a good man, as he had to be, in a life that was hard and even.” 

Lancaster Footlights is to present Arthur Miller's iconic play A View from the Bridge at The Grand, Lancaster, in February.

First produced in 1955, this is the story where Arthur Miller confronts the great American dream. In New York's Brooklyn, longshoreman Eddie Carbone welcomes his wife's Sicilian cousins to the land of freedom. When one of them falls for his beautiful niece, they discover that freedom comes at a terrible price.

As an added bonus, Footlights will be holding informal discussion sessions after the performances, for students and groups. Members of the cast and production team will be on hand by prior arrangement, to answer questions on the process of staging the play - but you need to inform the Box Ofiice that you wish to take part in advance.
