On the day Bernarda Alba buries her second husband, she imposes an 8-years period on her household in accordance with her family tradition. Bernarda has 5 daughters, aged between 20 and 39, whom she has controlled inexorably and prohibited from any form of relationship. Exchanging the oppressive heat of early twentieth century Spain for the oppressive rain of 1950s England, this brand new translation of Lorca's masterpiece distils the essence of the original play, showing the parallels between 1920s Andaluc a and 1950s Sussex while maintaining the emotional drive of Lorca's study of class, grief and -overall- the earthshattering consequences of attempting to repress the human heart.
