But as Rodolpho and Catherine fall in love, Eddie’s adoration of his niece is no longer touching, but terrifying.

“Betrayal is implicit in the tragic idea: Hamlet, Macbeth, King Lear and Eddie Carbone. It moves into your body like a stranger.” – Arthur Miller
This astonishingly lucid tragedy of ancient Greek proportions is purpose built by Arthur Miller to purify the audience in the time honoured way, by catharsis. The old gods have laws that extend far beyond those set down by mortal men. When fate chooses you, you had better get a lawyer, you better get a real good one. This is Arthur Miller at the top of his game.
Iain Sinclair – Director
