About the Show
A Spanish-speaking drama about a matriarch’s domination of her five daughters.
Described by author Federico García Lorca as “a drama of women in the villages of Spain”, 'The House of Bernarda Alba' explores themes of repression, passion, and conformity. Upon her second husband's death, Bernarda Alba imposes an eight-year mourning period on her household. Bernarda has five daughters, whom she has prohibited from any form of relationship. The mourning period further isolates them and tension mounts within the household.
