About the event

Directed By: Jacqui Marchant-Adams
Written By: Federico Garcia Lorca in a new version by Marta Dunphy-Moriel
Presented By: Tower Theatre Company

On the day Bernarda Alba buries her second husband, she imposes an 8-year mourning period on her household in accordance with her family tradition. Bernarda has 5 daughters, aged between 20 and 39, whom she has controlled inexorably and prohibited from any form of relationship.

Exchanging the oppressive heat of early twentieth century Southern Spain for the oppressive rain of 1950s England, this brand new translation of Lorca's masterpiece distils the essence of the original play, showing the parallels between 1920s Andalucía and 1950s Sussex while maintaining the emotional drive of Lorca's study of class, grief and - overall - the earthshattering consequences of attempting to repress the human heart.
