Photos are in for Arthur Miller’s A View from the Bridge – coming to London’s Rose Theatre next month.

The revival is a co-production between Headlong, Octagon Theatre Bolton, Chichester Festival Theatre and the Rose Theatre.

The cast includes Jonathan Slinger (Hamlet, Macbeth – RSC, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory) as Eddie, Nancy Crane (Inside Man – BBC, Suspicion – Apple TV, Summer & Smoke), as Alfieri.

They are joined by Kirsty Bushell as Beatrice, Rachelle Diedericks as Catherine, Elijah Holloway as Louis/Immigration Officer, Luke Newberry as Rodolpho, Tommy Sim’aan as Marco and Lamin Touray as Mike/Immigration Officer.

This new production is directed by Headlong Artistic Director Holly Race Roughan, and looks at the psychology of the play and its gender politics afresh.

The show plays the Rose Theatre in Kingston in London from 31 October to Saturday 11 November 2023.

The show is currently playing at the Octagon Theatre Bolton until 30 September, and runs at the Chichester Festival Theatre from 6 to 28 October 2023.

The creative team includes Emily Ling Williams – Associate Director, Moi Tran – Set and Costume, Mona Camille – Set and Costume Associate, Max Perryment – Composer and Sound Designer, Keegan Curran – Sound Associate, Alex Fernandes – Lighting Designer, Malik Nashad Sharpe – Movement Director, Aundrea Fudge – Voice and Dialect Coach, Kev McCurdy – Fight Director, Yarit Dor – Intimacy Director and Becky Paris – Casting Director.

Actor Jonathan Slinger said: “I am thrilled to be working with the highly acclaimed Headlong Theatre and Artistic Director, Holly Race Roughan on what will be my first time taking to the professional stage in a piece by the great Arthur Miller. Being from Lancashire myself, Bolton’s Octagon Theatre is a theatre close to my heart and the ideal venue for us to debut this fascinating new production that examines Arthur Miller’s classic text.”

Actor Nancy Crane said: “Holly’s production is a new perspective on one of Arthur Miller’s best-known plays…A modern-day Greek tragedy about love and identity and belonging and revenge, it seems to me incredibly relevant in 2023.”

Director Holly Race Roughan said: “Quite honestly, A View from the Bridge remains one of the most extraordinary plays I have ever read, and it is an honour to be co-producing it alongside some of the country’s most important theatres. Mounting the first major revival in the UK for nearly a decade, I am eager to explore its startlingly relevant themes with today’s audiences: the human price of a country’s immigration policies, ripping into the personal roar of suppressed feelings and the tenderness of romantic love. As with all my work, I am very interested in the thin membrane between the unconscious and the conscious. I am also excited by the play’s brutal and honest exploration of masculinity and how that sits with a modern audience. By casting Alfieri as a woman I hope to illuminate further the presence of the ‘feminine’ emotional intelligence in the play, and its offer to help build a new kind of masculinity.”
