Based on Federico García Lorca's 1936 play The House of Bernarda Alba, Robert Eric Shoemaker's adaptation -- set in the Louisiana floodplain -- tells the story of a controlling, newly widowed woman who's challenged by her five rebellious daughters. When a man who is desired by all enters their life, opposition and lust collide in this tragic portrait of a family caught between dying traditions and dreams of personal freedom. Funny yet shocking, see Bernarda Alba and Her House at Redtwist Theatre in Chicago.
This show is recommended for mature audiences.
Running time is 90 minutes, with no intermission.
December 20 & 27: There will be a talk-back with adaptor/translator Robert Eric Shoemaker.
