La Casa de Bernarda Alba de Federico García Lorca
The House of Bernarda Alba, from Garcia Lorca, is a classic play from the Spanish theater. The plays tell
the story of a repressive and dominating widow and mother who forces her five unmarried daughters to
remain in mourning form their father's death, sequestered with her for eight years. In the strict confines
of the house, jealousy and suppressed sexuality rise to the surface. As Bernarda’s oppression of her
daughter's increases, it is more than the girls’ liberty that is in danger.
