Set in a close-knit Italian-American community in 1950s New York, Miller confronts the American dream in this dark and passionate tale.

In Brooklyn, longshoreman Eddie Carbone welcomes his Sicilian cousins to the land of freedom but when one of them falls for his beautiful niece, they discover that freedom comes at a price.

The production is sponsored by FMS Furniture Suppliers.
