This award-winning production of Arthur Miller's classic comes to Ensemble Theatre
Director Iain Sinclair has had plenty of success with Arthur Miller's 1950s Brooklyn masterpiece. He first directed the play for the Old Fitz Theatre in 2017 and picked up four Sydney Theatre Awards, including Best Independent Production. He was then invited to create a new production for Melbourne Theatre Company earlier this year, which was met with rave reviews.
Now he's bringing the show to the Ensemble Theatre, with several members of the original Sydney cast, including Helpmann nominee Zoe Terakes and Janine Watson. Anthony Gooley takes over the lead role of Eddie Carbone from Ivan Donato.
The gripping play takes place in the shadow of the Brooklyn Bridge, where a family of migrants is almost torn apart when two cousins from Italy come to stay and work illegally. Sinclair's production strips the story back to its bare minimum and ramps up the drama.
