THE RULES WE MAKE ARE OFTEN THE ONES WE WANT TO BREAK
1954 New York and buried in the heart of the docking community on the seaward side of Brooklyn Bridge is the small neighbourhood of Red Hook. It’s a close-knit Italian American community, rich in culture, with a big heart and strong family ties. A place where men work and women keep house, and where honour and loyalty are the order of the day.
On the waterfront, Eddie Carbone is working hard and keeping his head down. Together with wife Beatrice they’ve raised their niece, Catherine, from a small child. Now they’ve taken in Beatrice’s Sicilian cousins, Marco and Rodolpho. But times are changing and Eddie’s losing his grip.
A devastating portrait of an ordinary man in a clash of cultures, of generations and of moral duty.
By Arthur Miller
