A co-production with Liverpool Everyman & Playhouse.“All right then show me already whose fault it is! They skinnin’ us alive here, so whose fault is it already?!”
Amidst the political tensions of 1950s America, Arthur Miller’s The Hook (The Crucible, All My Sons) was suppressed by the FBI for fear that it could cause unrest in New York’s dockyards.To mark the centenary of the Pulitzer Prize
winning playwright’s birth, Royal & Derngate and Liverpool Everyman & Playhouse will co-produce the world premiere of Miller’s ‘play for the screen’ adapted for the stage by Emmy Award-winning Ron Hutchinson.
Sixty years on, the dockyards of Brooklyn’s epic waterfront will come alive on the Royal stage for the extraordinary story of Marty Ferrara, a longshoreman who challenges the mobsters and gangs of ’50s New York and takes a stand against the corruption he witnesses from the authorities who control the docks.
The story of a close-knit community grappling with a world of crime and punishment, of changing industry and immigration from abroad, The Hook is a study in integrity and betrayal, charting one man’s struggle for meaningful change.
This world premiere from one of America’s most revered writers is directed by Artistic Director James Dacre.
