ABOUT THIS SHOW
After the death of her husband, Bernarda places a strict veil of mourning over herself, her four daughters and her senile mother. As the daughters’ desires and emotions clash with their mother’s strict control, tensions rise within the household. The sisters’ jealousies and rivalries boil over as their longing for freedom reaches a crescendo that exposes the destructive effects of Bernarda’s authoritarian rule.
An audacious new take on Lorca’s classic, ¡Bernarda!, is a daring new work by Emilio Williams that remains faithful to the relevance of the original while re-imagining it for a new generation. Starring an all Latina cast and an all femme design team, Teatro Vista Productions challenges traditional forms by bringing a new perspective to this classic.
