This acclaimed new production,of Arthur Miller's play, with a very starry cast, is directed by Olivier Award-winning Lindsay Posner.
This is a fine play. It's a classic, it's a social piece, acted by many a group. Children go to see it -  it is on the GSCE.

Nonetheless it is written to move and it does – that includes the actors whose performances have been enthsiastically acclaimed.

It is historically interesting as well, it is about an individual caught up in what he comes to see is very much a Brooklyn community that matter to him more in the end than his own jealousy.

Story
Eddie Carbone has made a good life for himself as a dockworker and his wife and niece in 1950's Brooklyn. Eddie's family were immigrants so he is happy to house and protect his wife's Italian cousins who smuggle themselves in illegally. They make a great impact on Eddie's life with emotional entanglements with his adored niece. Jealousy and fear of the loss of his family reputation combine to turn Eddie to betray his wife's cousins.... being one of their own. The betrayal of these Sicilians impacts his life and he suffers for it.

It seems that loyalty to the last by his wife and a general sympathy for his passion despite very bad behaviour. Christine is played by a radiant Hayley Atwell who has such a straight and yet innocent look that raises the energy.  Very softly beguiling and captivating.  So pure.  [can hardly blame him really - a face like that - could happen to a bishop - Ed]
