Seriously, this is hard work - there is no respite from the depression, repression and the irrational jealousy.
Similar in tone with On the Waterfront - Miller's play is an acquired taste, for those that wallow in misery - the kitchen sink dramas of Britain's 60s are taken across the Atlantic and stripped, denuded of any glimmer of hope or humour.
Life can't be this bad and if it is - who would want to pay to be a voyeur?
Stark and difficult. Powerful and pessimistic...but, challenging - if you have the stomach for it.
Eddie Carbone, a Brooklyn longshoreman is unhappily married to Beatrice and unconsciously in love with Catherine, the niece that they have raised from childhood. Into his house come two brothers, illegal immigrants, Marco and Rodolpho. Catherine falls in love with Rudolpho; and Eddie, tormented but unable to admit even to himself his quasi-incestuous love, reports the illegal immigrants to the authorities.
