About the Show
Olivier Award-winner Harriet Walter stars in a drama exploring the consequences of oppressing women.
Upon her second husband's death, authoritarian matriarch, Bernarda Alba, imposes an eight-year mourning period on her household. Bernarda has five daughters, whom she has prohibited from any form of relationship. Trapped in a suffocating environment, the daughters' desires lead to tragic consequences, highlighting the destructive nature of societal oppression and the price paid for defying it.
Olivier Award-winner Harriet Walter ('Succession') stars alongside Isis Hainsworth ('Romeo & Juliet') in this revival of Federico García Lorca’s modern tragedy.
'The House of Bernarda Alba' marks Olivier Award-winning director Rebecca Frecknall's ('Cabaret') directorial debut at the National Theatre.
