SUMMARY

Lorca’s The House of Bernarda Alba, in a translation that hums with rhythm and poetry, is an all-female tragedy of passion, oppression and reputation. After her husband’s funeral, proud matriarch Bernarda Alba imposes an eight-year mourning period upon her household. Her five daughters are locked inside the house, with only their chores and frustrations to occupy them. Then a man enters their lives... As jealousy and suppressed sexuality surface, the women tear each other apart, and the effects of Bernarda’s cruelty endangers more than the girls’ liberty.
