Josephinum Academy to Perform The House of Bernarda Alba

Join us for our upcoming Senior/Junior Acting Studios production of The House of Bernarda Alba by the Spanish dramatist Federico García Lorca (and translated by James Graham-Lujan and Richard O'Connell).

The House of Bernarda Alba is arguably the greatest of modern Spanish tragedies. Bernarda, the matriarch, has just been widowed. In an attempt to protect her five daughters, she cloisters them in the house. Each daughter desires escape but the doors are clamped shut. Inspired by real characters and described by the author as a true record of village life, it is a tragic tale of frustration and explosive passions in a household of women ruled by a tyrannical mother.'
