THE HOUSE OF BERNARDA ALBA is Coming to Calgary

Sage Theatre to Feature Federico García Lorca's Classic

THE HOUSE OF BERNARDA ALBA is Coming to Calgary

PRESENTS
THE HOUSE OF BERNARDA ALBA
SEPTEMBER 22 - OCTOBER 1, 2022
cSPACE - 1721 29 Ave SW Suite #125, Calgary, AB T2T 6T7

The father of a prominent family is dead. Five women are forced by their mother to live
inside their house for eight years and mourn their loss without having any outside contact.
In the intense heat of summer, the conflicts, repression, and secrets of the house are
unchained, while the walls collapse in fear.

Written in 1936, The House of Bernarda Alba is considered one of the masterpieces of
Spanish theatre. Queer playwright Federico García Lorca wrote this all-female play as an
analogy of the sexual and emotional repression he experienced throughout his life.

In this exciting new production, the text has been modernized for a cast of all 2SLGBTQIA+
performers to give life to Lorca's characters. Sage Theatre's production of 'The House of
Bernarda Alba' is a relevant and transgressive examination of the oppression and
marginalization that members of the queer community continue to bravely battle in today's society.

The play is performed by: Conrad Belau, Jaime Cesar, Ben Gaudet, Jason Hardwick,
Trevor Schmidt, Tiffany Thomas, and Marshall Vielle.

Directed by Javier Vilalta. Set Design by Hanne Loosen. Lighting Design by Shane
Anderson. Sound Design by Kristin Eveleigh. Costume Design by Norman J. MacDonald.
Stage Manager is Ashley Rees.

Tickets are available from by visiting sagetheatre.com

The show runs from September 22 - October 1, 2022 with daily performances at 8pm, and 2pm matinees on September 24 and 25, and October 1. There is no performance on
September 26.
