WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

A play of tremendous emotion, The House of Bernarda Alba features the domineering, puritanical matriarch Bernarda who, after buying her second husband, sets a great tragedy in motion with the decree that she and her five daughters must enter a period of mourning for eight years. For the youthful and unmarried daughters the seclusion becomes a prison sentence denying their natural thirst for living and creating a claustrophobic, hothouse existence. Each woman finds her own way of rebelling against the mother's tyrrany, but there are inevitable, dark consequences.
