García Lorca’s drama about the shattering effects of emotional repression on a family of cloistered daughters, translated by playwright Rona Munro for the critically acclaimed Shared Experience Theatre Company.

When Bernarda Alba’s husband dies, she locks all the doors and windows. She tells her grown-up daughers to sew and be silent. "There are eight years of mourning ahead of us. While it lasts not even the wind will get into this house." But not even the tyranny of Bernarda’s repressive rule can cool the passion and desire that smoulder darkly within the household.
