A View from The BridgeLocation: Le Brocq
In a violent, tight-knit community, secrets can be demons, betrayal can cost you your life. Eddie is in denial about his ‘unspeakable desire’ for his 17-year-old niece Katie; his wife suspects his intentions. Hiding two immigrants, Eddie is horrified to find Katie falling in love. His dilemma is solved by the police arresting them. But the community has a way of dealing with snitches: Eddie is forced to face the consequences of illicit love and betrayal and is ‘pulled inside out’, and ‘made known’ to us. That is his tragedy in this deceptively simple tale.
