A classic returns to Shattered Globe Theatre…
Eddie, a longshoreman, visits a lawyer with a problem: His teenage niece, an orphan who he raised like his own daughter, has fallen in love with an Italian immigrant. The two want to marry, but Eddie must stop them… things are not what they seem. A View From the Bridge at Shattered Globe Theatre revisits a timeless story about desire, the decay of old values, and the yearning for what is lost when you leave home to build something new.

A Chicago Premiere comedy for the end of the world…
An apartment on the 19th floor. All Edith wants — it’s not too much to ask, is it? — is to sit and have some tea with her husband, someday, when he’s done with building his masterpiece. The kids don’t call enough, and when they do, they seem full of accusations. Meanwhile, outside their apartment, the waters are rising, rising, rising… This Chicago Premiere is a dynamic comedy about love and companionship across gender and generational divides.
