This is a classic tragedy of life, love and loss. When an American working class family learns of the destitution of their immigrant cousins, they decide to take in two who have been smuggled into the country. Brooklyn longshoreman Eddie Carbone welcomes his immigrant cousins to America, but when one of them falls for Eddie’s young niece, Eddie’s jealous mistrust exposes an unspeakable secret — one that drives him to commit the ultimate betrayal, testing the limits of family bonds and personal honor.
Miller, who wrote Death of a Salesman and The Crucible, said that the plot for A View from the Bridge developed from a true story a lawyer who worked with longshoremen related to him.
