The House of Bernarda Alba, written in 1936 shortly before Federico García Lorca’s death in the Spanish Civil War, presents a bleak glimpse of rural Spanish life. The wealthy, such as Bernarda Alba, maintain stingy control of everything and everyone around them, while the poor argue over scraps from the table. Often grouped with the plays Blood Wedding and Yerma as a “rural” trilogy, The House of Bernarda Alba examines a world without men that demands conformity, repression, and sacrifice from the women who desperately want hope for their futures.
