WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
The House of Bernarda Alba follows the plight of the widow Bernarda. After her husband's death, she locks the doors and windows against the world and imposes a strict period of mourning on her five daughters. Under the shadow of the church and the rules of society, the women conflict and spiral into emotional chaos.
Performed by a large, all-female cast of Engage actors, this production will use specially-commissioned original choral music and will transform the egg theatre into the inner courtyard of Bernarda's house.
