A View from the Bridge by Arthur Miller, starring Mary
McDonnell, Harry Hamlin, Amy Pietz, and Ed O’Neill. Longshoreman Eddie
Carbone is devoted to his wife, Beatrice, and to his niece, Catherine. When Beatrice’s impoverished Sicilian cousins enter the U.S. illegally in the hope of finding work, Eddie gives them a helping hand.  But when Catherine and one of the cousins fall in love, Eddie’s affection for his niece turns into obsession.  Italian-American immigrant life in the 1950’s textures this searing drama of love and revenge.  The broadcast includes an interview with Mary McDonnell.
