Kathleen O'Neill directs Federico Garcia Lorca's famed drama

Written shortly before playwright Federico Garcia Lorca's assassination in 1936, THE HOUSE OF BERNARDA ALBA explores the consequences of a mother's tyranny over her daughters. After the death of her husband, Bernarda Alba declares a mourning period of eight years for her household, which includes her five marriageable daughters and her mother. The arrival of a suitor for her eldest daughter forces the revelation of their family's secrets and passions to an explosive conclusion.

Starring Joy Franz (original Broadway casts of INTO THE WOODS and PIPPIN), Joy Seligsohn, Stephanie Schmiderer, Campbell Echols, Megan Campisi, Meredith Napolitano, Benita Robeldo, Olivia Lawrence, Maitely Weismann, Helene Galek and Kathleen Kwan.
