2015 - 2016  37th Anniversary Season


by Arthur Miller

Eddie is a longshoreman who, for all of his faults, is an admirable man. When two of his wife's Italian cousins are smuggled into this country, he makes room for them in his home. Gratefully, they move in among his wife and teenage niece, whom Eddie has brought up and come to love as a daughter. One of the illegal immigrants is young, handsome and single. He wants to become an American, and he falls in love with his benefactor's niece. A monstrous change creeps up on the kind and loving Eddie. He is violently opposed to this romance and can not see that this opposition is not motivated by a dislike of the boy, but by his own too intense love for his niece. Tragedy soon unfolds in this profoundly absorbing drama.
