House of Bernarda Alba

Relevance Productions

Show Information:

In the wake of her husband’s death, tyrannical matriarch Bernarda Alba enforces eight years of mourning upon her five daughters: For eight years, they are not allowed to leave their home. But the daughters’ desires for love and longing for freedom have come to a boil, leading to an explosive generational confrontation. Described as a “surrealistic dream-like vision, punctuated by an expressionistic nightmare,” this genre-bending piece of theatre explodes off the stage by way of an all-female cast. Based off the Spanish rural tragedy by Federico Garcia Lorca. Conceived and directed by Scott Cox.

    Absolutely loved this! The staging, the movement, the costumes, the choices of each of the actors, the eerie sounds that were made in this timely telling of a story for women and how they relate with one another. Go see this at Just Off Broadway!

    An overbearing mother seeks to contain her five daughters from life and men outside her house. All the actors are in fantastic face paint giving the show the feel of a goth Jane Austen novel. Dramatic and at times almost surreal, but a smattering of comedy helps break up the building tensions. The atmosphere is different from other shows I’ve seen this year and pulled me in right from the beginning.
