THE HOUSE OF BERNARDA ALBA is one of those deliciously sinister plays that unpacks social mores, female relationships, self destruction and repression in a way that is eminently watchable. The current production at Epic Theatre features Michelle L. Walker as Bernarda Alba, a part so perfectly cast that you can't imagine anyone else in this role. The rest of the cast is equally strong, but it's very clear through Walker's performance that she is Bernarda Alba, and this is her house.

As a young gay man growing up in Spain, choreographer Carlos Pons Guerra was bullied and rejected by his peers. Federico García Lorca's 1936 play, The House of Bernarda Alba, changed his life -- García Lorca's brave and unique voice challenged the oppressive nature of Spanish society, and gave a scared young teenager the courage to speak, to love himself, and to find freedom. In Waiting for Pepe, Pons Guerra infuses García Lorca's tale of family intrigue with the exuberant theatricality of Latin films and telenovelas.
