A View from the Bridge

I am back in Cambridge for a week. Here is the first of a series of blogposts, from what is bound to be a very intense but very fun week. First up, “A view from the Bridge” which we photographed at King’s College.

Below is an excerpt from Camdram:

Shadowed under the gaze of the Brooklyn Bridge: Eddie Carbone, his wife Beatrice and their orphaned niece, Catherine. Catherine has lived her life under the shelter of her aunt and the watchful eye of her uncle. Even the proposition to accept a job is begrudgingly met. Meanwhile, Beatrice’s cousins, Marco and Rodolpho, have arrived from Italy having entered the country illegally.

As jealousy enters the ring, and the self destructive fragility of humanity is pushed to its limits, witness tragedy emerge from the ruins. A thrilling journey for all, absorb yourself in one of the most intense plays ever written.
