In a 2016 interview with The Guardian, Rose Byrne who was in rehearsal for Speed The Plow at Sydney Theatre Company, explained in extensive detail the play that ‘took her breath away’. It was a production of Arthur Miller’s A View From The Bridge at Company B.
First produced as a one act play in 1955 at the then named Coronet Theatre (now the Eugene O’Neil Theatre) before premiering as a 2 act play under the direction of Peter Brook in London’s West End, A View From The Bridge has electrified audiences around the world and most recently was tackled by Ivo Van Hove in a Tony Award winning revival starring Mark Strong.
Red Line Productions will present the play for the first time in twelve years in Sydney, in a production directed by award winning director Iain Sinclair (Of Mice & Men, All My Sons, Our Town.)
“As the inevitable end encroaches, like a stampede in slow motion, the play tightens its grip. You feel your pupils dilate. Your skin starts to bristle. Your spine starts to shift.” – Variety
In this Sinclair directed production, the legendary small stage of the Fitz will be reduced even further, with a custom built traverse seating bank to surround the action of Miller’s text.
The ensemble will be led by Ivan Donato as Eddie Carbone and rising star Zoe Terakes (Janet King) as Catherine.
With Lincoln Younes (Love Child, Home & Away, Tangle,) as Rudolpho, Janine Watson (Delores, Antigone) as Beatrice, Davin Soncin (The Judas Kiss) as Marco, David Lynch (Neville’s Island) as Alfieri and Giles Gartrell-Mills (Julias Caesar) as several Longshoremen.
