"During the eight years of our mourning, not even the wind from the street shall enter this house!"

Andalusia, 1936.

In the wake of her husband's death, tyrannical matriarch Bernarda imposes eight years of mourning upon her five adult daughters: for eight years, they are not to leave the family home.

But Bernarda's blinkered puritanism cannot account for the desires of her daughters, and soon unrest begins to swell in the house as each seeks to assert a sense of self and their own place in the world.

Interpreted by an entirely female cast, this is a tale of generations at odds with one another, of the assertion of identity above conformity and of the drive to be human.

Often grouped together with The Blood Wedding and Yerma as a “rural trilogy”, The House of Bernarda Alba is Garcia Lorca’s final and greatest work. He was shot by the fascist authorities of Granada two months after it was completed.
