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.
