Arthur Miller confronts the American dream in this dark and passionate tale. In Brooklyn, longshoreman Eddie Carbone 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.

This is the Young Vic’s second collaboration with NT Live, following the broadcast in September 2014 of Tennessee Williams’ A Streetcar Named Desire, directed by Benedict Andrews and starring Gillian Anderson, Ben Foster and Vanessa Kirby.

Tickets can be booked from The Capitol, Horsham.
