THE McMillan Theatre in Bridgwater is the place to view one of the most acclaimed modern plays live from London’s National Theatre.

Arthur Miller’s tragic masterpiece, A View From The Bridge, will be screened to The McMillan this Sunday, May 15, from 7pm.

The play is based in Brooklyn, and follows the story of longshoreman Eddie Carbone who welcomes his Sicilian cousins to the land of freedom.

But when one of them falls for his beautiful niece, they discover that freedom comes at a price.

Eddie’s jealous mistrust exposes a deep, unspeakable secret – one that drives him to commit the ultimate betrayal.

Miller has been acclaimed as one of America’s greatest playrights who could get under the skin of ordinary people, telling their stories with a raw honesty.

His characters are complex, tragic and comic but with a vulnerability which echoes their desire to reach for and find the American dream.

However, they are flawed people who are caught up in the real world and their passions.

The National Theatre is one of the world’s leading

theatre producers who stage up to 30 productions at their South Bank, London venue each and every year.

The McMillan has already screened three National Theatre Live performances to its 350 seater venue.

A View From The Bridge won a trio of 2014 Olivier Awards including Best Revival, Best Actor for Mark Strong (The Imitation Game; Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy) and Best Director for Ivo van Hove.

The McMillan also plan to screen The Audience to celebrate the Queen’s 90th birthday, on June 12, 7pm.

The award-winning production of Queen Elizabeth II’s weekly meetings with every prime minister for 60 years includes an exclusive question and answer session with Helen Mirren and director Stephen Daldry.
