The House of Bernarda Alba
November 28 - November 29, 2012
A Concert Staging
Written by Federico Garcia Lorca
Adapted by Emily Mann
Directed by Lee Orchard
The play begins after the death of Bernarda Alba’s second husband. Alba demands that her household mourn the death for eight years. However, the five daughters quickly become entranced with the eldest daughter’s handsome fiancé, Parviz Rumani. As the decision to wed the eldest daughter is a strictly financial one, the youngest daughter is the one who steals the heart of the young man. When the truth inevitably comes out, Bernarda Alba must try to maintain control -- with tragic consequences.
This presentation is being performed in partnership with The Valparaiso University Department of Theatre.
