Arthur Miller’s intense play weaves a darkening journey of hidden truths, passion and betrayal. Eddie Carbone, a Brooklyn longshoreman, confronts his emotions as his wife Beatrice’s niece Catherine falls in love with Rodolfo, a family cousin recently arrived from Sicily with his brother Marco, and welcomed into the household.
Miller draws on traditional cultural themes, and also his own experiences in front of the House Un-American Activities Committee to create a classic drama that explores the ideals of conviction and loyalty, and the depths of despair that emotions can take us to, seemingly without control.
Throughout the piece, he bridges the gap between the individual and the bigger picture through the narrative of Alfieri, his Italian-American lawyer.
This is the great Arthur Miller, and at his poignant best…..
