About This Show

Written by Federico Garcia Lorca, Spain’s most acclaimed modern playwright, The House of Bernarda Alba is the devastatingly powerful story of a domineering woman obsessed with maintaining the honor of her family’s name against the forces of a brutal society. Bernarda Alba’s iron-fisted oppression of her five daughters transforms their rural home into a powder keg of tension, jealousy and fear.

In this stunning world- premiere-translation by Karin Coonrod and Nilo Cruz and featuring two professional actresses along with a student cast, the Ring Theatre co-production with the Adrienne Arsht Center promises to be a compelling and not-to-be-missed theatrical experience. Although it is tragic in tone and story, The House of Bernarda Alba ultimately celebrates the enduring human struggle for freedom and happiness in the darkest of times.
