By Federico García Lorca
Translation by Karin Coonrod & Nilo Cruz Florida Premiere!
A devastatingly powerful story of a domineering woman obsessed with maintaining the honor of her family's name against the forces of brutal small-town society, the play explores Bernarda's iron-fisted oppression of her five daughters, transforming their rural home into a powder keg of tension, jealousy and fear.
To commemorate the 75th anniversary of Lorca's death, the Adrienne Arsht Center launches a ground-breaking partnership with the University of Miami Department of Theatre Arts with this masterpiece of 20th-century drama.
