Heinemann Plays' offers contemporary drama and new editions of classic plays. The series has been developed to support classroom teaching and to meet the requirements of Key Stages 3 and 4. The plays are ideal for classroom reading and performance; many have large casts and an equal mix of parts for boys and girls. Each play includes strategies and activities to introduce and use the plays in the classroom. "A View From the Bridge" tells the story of Eddie Carbone, who agrees to shelter his wife's cousins who are seeking refuge in New York as illegal immigrants. Trouble begins when his wife's niece is attracted to Eddie's younger brother. There are 13 parts, ten of which are male and three female.
