A View from the Bridge by Arthur Miller – Director Caroline Kay

 

The great Arthur Miller confronts The American dream in this classic play. 

1950’s, in Red Hook, Brooklyn, Eddie Carbone is an honourable, hard-working longshoreman who has raised his wife’s niece Catherine, like a daughter. When his wife’s cousins, Rodolpho and Marco unexpectedly arrive from Italy looking for a new life, he’s proud to offer them safe harbour. However, when Catherine falls for Rodolpho they discover that freedom comes at a price. Eddie’s jealous mistrust exposes a deep, unspeakable secret – one that drives him to commit the ultimate betrayal, and ends in tragedy.

First seen in London in 1956, it is one of the greatest plays of the 20th century.

The Vicar of Dibley – by Richard Curtis and Paul Mayhew-Archer : adapted by Ian Gower and Paul Carpenter 

 

When Reverend Pottle, who has presided over the village of Dibley for decades, passes on to another world, the parishioners are surprised by his replacement – a chocolate loving, Sean Bean obsessed vicar. The the biggest shock is that she is a woman!

Geraldine granger is surrounded by parishioners of the maddest variety : Frank pickle, the world’s most boring man; Jim Trott, who can’t string a sentence together; Letitia Cropley, the queen of Corden Bleu; Hugo Horton, who thinks Kylie Minogue should be Prime Minister; Alice Tinker, who makes Hugo Horton look intelligent; Owen Newitt, local farmer and a complete stranger to personal hygiene, and David Horton – snobbish, bad-tempered but ultimately loveable.

This hilarious show is a combination of episodes from series 1 and 2, as well as an Easter special. It starts with Geraldine’s arrival in Dibley, and ends with the wedding of Hugo and Alice. In its 13 years on TV, it won multiple British Academy Television Awards.
