The House of Bernarda Alba

by Federico García Lorca

translated by Caridad Svich

Directed by Shepard Sobel

 

In a hostile time and place, five sisters struggle to satisfy their hopes and desires.  A stifling and perverse moral code tightens its grip on the oppressed.  Lorca sets his often funny, often searing, always humane cri de coeur in rural Spain on the eve of its Civil War – indeed, in the time of his writing, and a few months before Franco’s forces murdered the poet and playwright.  But Lorca writes for our age and all ages, challenging us to defy Bernarda’s closing, insistent, truth-defying command to be blind and to be silent. With a cast of 16 young women, this lyrical, earthy play invites – requires – urgent exploration, and promises a revelatory experience for actors and for audience
