Audition for A View from the Bridge!

Audition for A View from the Bridge!

Thursday, 7 August 2014

Ever fancied treading the boards? Got a hankering for the limelight? Find out how you could be part of the Touring Consortium Theatre Company's next production of AView from the Bridge...

In spring 2015, the Touring Consortium Theatre Company will produce Arthur Miller's modern classic, A View from the Bridge. 2015 is the centenary of Arthur Miller’s birth and they are delighted to be celebrating it with this production of one of his most popular plays.
 

Set in 1950s New York and crackling with raw emotion, this American classic simmers with tension as longshoreman Eddie Carbone's obsession with his orphaned niece spirals out of control. In a close Italian immigrant community bound by codes of justice and vengeance, the scene is set for disaster when Eddie and his wife welcome Sicilian cousins into their home.

Sexual repression, paranoia and homophobia drive Eddie to an act of betrayal that has tragic consequences for himself, his family and the whole community. This dark and passionate tale ranks as one of the great classics of our time.
