"A View from the Bridge" debuted as a one-act play on Broadway on September 9, 1955 at the Coronet Theatre. Miller subsequently revised the play to two acts (the version with which audiences are most familiar), and had its premiere at the New Watergate theatre in London's West End on October 11, 1956, running through April 20, 1957. Under the direction of Peter Brook, the cast included Richard Harris, Anthony Quayle, Megs Jenkins, Mary Ure, Brian Bedford, Ian Bannen and Michael Gwynne.

8 x 10 inches. Very Good plus, some faint creasing, some crop marking in white ink and faint outlining of the figures on the recto.
