by Federico Garcia Lorca

Translated by Caridad Svich

Following the death of her husband, aging matriarch Bernarda Alba imposes eight years of cloistered mourning on her five unmarried daughters. Behind the house's barred windows and away from their mother's prying eyes, the five imprisoned women violently yearn for freedom, which they project onto a young and duplicitous suitor, Pepe el Romano, who is set to marry the oldest daughter, Angustias. As Bernarda holds an iron grip on her children, a storm of secret desires threatens to tear this house to the ground.


The House of Bernarda Alba sold out nearly every performance, as the Emerson College community turned to the arts in the days following the shocking election results. You can read about it here.
