Arouet Announces May 2012 Production of THE HOUSE OF BERNARDA ALBA

Arouet has announced the May 2012 production of THE HOUSE OF BERNARDA ALBA (La Casa de Bernarda Alba) by Federico García Lorca, adapted in English by Emily Mann.

At the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War in 1936, Federico Garcia Lorca finished what would be his final masterpiece, The House of Bernarda Alba. Two months later he was killed for his leftist politics.

About the show: "After the death of her second husband, Bernarda Alba decrees a traditional eight-year mourning period. Tyrannically ruling over her five daughters, she will do anything to safeguard her family’s place in the community and daughter’s futures. Jealousy and suppressed sexuality quickly rise to the surface, leading to rebellion and a tragically inevitable ending. Expressing the costs of repressing the freedom of others, 75 years later The House of Bernarda Alba is still a timeless work, particularly in today’s political climate."

The play will be directed by Charles Waxberg, Artistic Director of Theatre 9/12, who has most recently received rave reviews for his play A Shade of Green. Assistant Directing will be Arouet’s founder Roy Arauz, who directed last year’s well received The Gene Pool.

Costume design will be by Anastasia Armes, sound design by J.S. Epperson, and lighting design by Keith Gehrig. A set designer will be announced shortly.
