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.
