4-stars “Breathtaking theatre.” The Guardian

In this recording of Lorca’s final masterpiece adapted by award-winning writer Jo Clifford, acclaimed star of stage and screen Kathryn Hunter plays Bernarda, leading a stellar all-female company of Deaf and disabled artists.

4-stars “Jenny Sealey directs with dexterity, interweaving all the demands of this production into something special. An extraordinary production.” The Times

Bitter and darkly-comic, The House of Bernarda Alba charts the tyranny, jealousy and a desperate struggle for freedom between a mother and her five daughters, that will eventually lead to tragedy.
