Berlin Open Theatre and Shakespeare Reloaded present an innovative reworking of Federico García Lorca's classic play, "The House of Bernarda Alba." Experience this powerful female-fronted drama like never before, performed in English and brought to life with a fresh, modern twist.

About the Play:

"The House of Bernarda Alba" follows the story of a tyrannical widow who, after the death of the family patriarch, indefinitely confines her five daughters to their home, stifling their desires and freedoms. The oppressive atmosphere leads to rising tensions, jealousy, and conflict among the daughters, especially concerning the engagement of the eldest daughter, Angustias, to the elusive Pepe el Romano.

This is a tale of power, repression, and the struggle for freedom within a strict, authoritarian household. This innovative reworking by Berlin Open Theatre and Shakespeare Reloaded infuses Lorca's timeless themes with contemporary relevance, exploring the dynamics of control and resistance in new and unexpected ways.
