Synopsis: Immediately following her husband's death, Bernarda Alba orders her five daughters to observe an eight-year mourning period in which none of them will leave the house. The young women do their best to obey their mother, but when the handsome Pepe el Romano arrives on the scene the young women's desire to honor their mother's tradition is set against their yearning for freedom. Originally written as a critique of the rise of fascism in 1936, The House of Bernarda Alba addresses themes of repression and the fear of change.
