I know your mom is going to give you cash for asking or answering good questions about A View from the Bridge tonight.
So here are some ideas for starters:
1. What is a longshoreman? (Hint: you may have seen some of them when you went on a cruise with your mom and watched the people on the dock as they loaded and unloaded cargo on other ships.)
2. What is a Greek tragedy. (Hint: it has something to do with a tragic flaw in the protagonist.)
3. The set of this play is described as spartan by some of the reviewers. What does the word spartan mean in the context of A View from the Bridge? (No hint here, but think back to Beyond the Beautiful Forever and remember how easily we became aware that the characters were in different places, i.e. a school, a bathroom, a jail ... just with a few props.)
Enjoy the play.
I can hardly wait to read your comments (or those comments of anyone in your party) afterward. I think you will go with the biggest group of any of us. At our house, it is only Kelvin and me who will see the play. Arta
