Sunday at the Drama Festival: Prosperous present ‘A View From The Bridge’

Tonight, the closing night of the drama festival, we welcome Prosperous and their production of ‘A View From The Bridge’ by Arthur Miller.

A View from the Bridge premiered in 1956. Set in an Italian-American neighborhood on the Brooklyn side of the Brooklyn Bridge, the play follows the unraveling of Eddie Carbone following the arrival of two of his wife’s cousins from Italy. Eddie is obsessed with his niece, Catherine, and is threatened by her relationship with one of the cousins.

Prosperous Dramatic Society, from the village of Prosperous in Co Kildare has a treasured history of community-based theatre for over 100 years. The group has a broad membership, with ages from 7 – 70+ and operates from its own magical 90 seat theatre in the centre of the village producing a number of plays each year and of course it’s legendary Christmas Panto. The group actively supports many local charitable organisations and often partners with other local groups to bring drama to the wider local community. PDS is extremely proud of its members, many of whom are now All Ireland Award-winning Actors, Actresses, Stage Managers, Set Designers, Directors and the accomplishments that they have achieved through the spirit of volunteering and teamwork across generations.
