The House of Bernarda Alba
“This autumn the National Theatre of Scotland presents a major new version of Federico Garcia Lorca’s The House of Bernarda Alba. Set in contemporary Scotland, Rona Munro’s bristling, edgy translation is directed by John Tiffany and features Siobhan redmond in the title role… [Lorca] decribed it as ‘a drama of women in the villages of Spain’ – a theme that is electrifyingly transposed in this version to the tough communities of Glasgow’s East End. Faithfully preserving Lorca’s sense of boiling tension and impending tragedy, the production lines up a stunning cast of twelve Scottish women to bring this classic text thrillingly up to date.” (Taken from The Alhambra’s Autumn/Winter 2009 leaflet)
