The House of Bernarda Alba
"Better never to lay eyes on a man, never to have seen one." Five sisters dressed in black fight and bitch in their prison of a house. Their mother Bernarda rules over them trying to control their every move under the heat of the Andaluz sun. Her eldest daughter is to be married to the infamous Pepe el Romano. The only thing that stands in her way is her sisters.
Lorca's moving, funny, epic tragedy on family life is set against a backdrop of the oppression of Franco's Spain in 1936. Just months after completing the play he was shot dead.
