The House of Bernarda Alba featuring Jen Davies (Actor)
At the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War in 1936, Federico Garcia Lorca finished what would be his final masterpiece, The House of Bernarda Alba. Two months later he was killed for his leftist politics.
After the death of her second husband, Bernarda Alba decrees a traditional eight-year mourning period. Tyranically ruling over her five daughters, she will do anything to safeguard her family’s place in the community and daughter’s futures. Jealousy and suppressed sexuality quickly rise to the surface, leading to rebellion and a tragically inevitable ending. Expressing the costs of repressing the freedom of others, 75 years later The House of Bernarda Alba is still a timeless work, particularly in today’s political climate.
