THE HOUSE OF BERNARDA ALBA

THE HOUSE OF BERNARDA ALBA
by Federico García Lorca

The greatest of modern Spanish tragedies, The House of Bernarda Alba is the story of a family in mourning, led by a stern matriarch. Upon the passing of her husband, Bernarda announces to her five daughters that the family will observe the traditional eight-years of cloistered mourning. Each daughter desires love, but with the doors clamped shut, they silently turn to other pursuits. Ultimately, the pressure of this caged passion leads to a tragic climax that is unrelenting in its severity and terror.
