“You can’t conceive of a tragedy without the idea of betrayal.”
In this unique BBC documentary, playwright Arthur Miller examines the characters, themes and political context of A View from the Bridge, focusing on the strength of community, the role of the narrator and the influence of Greek tragedy on the play.
Miller discusses his inspiration for writing about the Italian-American experience, comparing the differences between Europe and America in the 1950s, and explores the impact of presenting the tragic outcome at the very beginning.
