This series of plays for the 11-16 age range offers contemporary drama and new editions of classic plays. The series has been developed to support classroom teaching and to meet the requirements of the National Curriculum 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.

"[In Arthur Miller's plays] we find the true compassion and catharsis that are as essential to our society as water and fire and babies and air. . . . Miller awakened in me the taste for all that must be-the empathy and love for the least of us, out of which bursts a gratitude for the poetry of his characters and the greatness of their creator." -Philip Seymour Hoffman, from the Foreword
