BWW Reviews: Cruella in a Mantilla?: BERNARDA ALBA at FPCT Needs Some RethinkingBWW Reviews: Cruella in a Mantilla?: BERNARDA ALBA at FPCT Needs Some Rethinking
by Jack L. B. Gohn - Apr 21, 2015

Only a brave community theater would take on The House of Bernarda Alba, Federico Garcia Lorca's last play. Written by a closeted gay playwright at the very outset of the Francisco Franco's conservative fascist rule and savagely attacking that era's repression of female freedom, both social and sexual (and by implication other freedoms), it inevitably betrays an air of extreme avant-gardeism. Ibsen and Strindberg and Wedekind may have gone into the same territory, but as of 1936 not too many others. And Lorca drives home his message as if no one had ever conveyed it before - which was more or less true in his time and place. (more...)
