ALL FEMALE, WELSH CAST PREMIERE LORCA’S CLASSIC TALE AT THE RIVERFRONT... Don’t miss the all-female Theatr Pena’s The House of Bernarda Alba from Wednesday 4 February to Saturday 7 February 7.45pm at The Riverfront.

Obsessed with family honour, Bernarda Alba rules her household with an iron fist. Following the death of her second husband, she announces to her five unmarried daughters that their period of mourning will last for eight years. But under the heat of the oppressive Andalusian sun, passions reach boiling point and an explosion of desire, jealousy, hatred and despair threatens to bring down The House of Bernarda Alba.

Written in 1936, The House of Bernarda Alba deals with the human struggle between oppression and freedom, and was to be the last play written by Spain’s most famous young poet and playwright, as just two months after it was completed, he was murdered by Franco’s supporters.

Theatr Pena is a gathering of some of Wales’ finest actresses, theatre practitioners and associated artists who share a passion for engaging and challenging theatre and the desire to create contemporary productions of classic plays.
