The House of Bernarda Alba

The House of Bernarda Alba

Based on a new adaptation by Chay Yew
Written by Federico García Lorca
Directed by Granada Artist-in-Residence Juliette Carrillo.

 

UC Davis Department of Theatre and Dance presents a unique and timeless production of The House of Bernarda Alba directed by Granada Artist-in-Residence Juliette Carrillo whose work has been praised in The New York Times. Carrillo’s interpretation of Lorca’s famous work is Victorian Gothic with a modern twist. Wrought with sexual tension, The House of Bernarda Alba inspects the effects of a male dominated and hierarchical society upon women as five daughters are confined to their mother’s house for an 8-year period of mourning. Vocals, electric guitar and other instruments add a haunting dimension to the play’s themes of repression, passion and conformity.

This production is rated PG-13 for sexuality, adult language and violence.

There will be audience talk-backs with director, cast and designers immediately after the show on March 9 and 18.
