The House of Bernarda Alba - Lunds Studentteater

Lunds Studentteater proudly presents this term's production - The House of Bernarda Alba by Federico García Lorca, which premiers 11/12.

Directed by Julia Jarvi and Johanna Persson Hansson
Produced by Daesung Cho

Performances monday-thursday at 19:00 in Lilla Salen at AF - the play will be performed in English.

When Bernarda Alba’s husband dies, she decides to lock herself, her servants and her five daughters in her house for eight years of mourning. She’s determined to not let anything ruin her family, be it malicious gossip from the neigbours or her own daughters’ wishes to get married. Tension quickly builds between the inhabitants, all women, as secrets and jealousy slowly starts to break apart the facade of a family that Bernarda has carefully crafted. 

The House of Bernarda Alba is a claustrophobic story of hierarchy and personal agency, and how they affect our place in a community, be it a family or a village. Written by Federico García Lorca in Spain in the early 1930s, it reflects and criticizes its time, but it’s just as applicable on the many unwritten rules and problems in society today as it was then.
