‘Silence, I say! Silence! You can weep when you’re alone.’
Trapped in a house and a culture riddled with religiosity, malicious gossip, contempt for
women and blatant hypocrisy, Bernarda Alba’s five daughters react to eight years of enforced
mourning for their unloved father with rage, yearning, unsatisfied desire and dangerous,
ultimately fatal ‘misbehaviour’.
For Irish audiences this lethal Spanish cocktail of traditional misogyny, puritanism and
desperate rebellion is as familiar as yesterday’s news
With a powerful ensemble from Year 3 BA Theatre & Drama Studies students, live music and
short dance sequences draw on the lyricism and the sensuality of Lorca’s words to emphasise
the intense physical drama underlying all the poisonous small talk, The House of Bernarda
Alba is as compelling today as it was at the outbreak of the Spanish civil war that killed its
author.
Adapted and directed by Johnny Hanrahan, Music Composition by Wike Schippers, Sound
Design by Cormac O’Connor, Costume Design by Gillian Roberts, Lighting Design by Declan
Leonard and Set Construction by Davy Dummigan.
The House of Bernarda Alba will run at The Stack Theatre, MTU Cork School of Music for five
shows from Tuesday 20 - Saturday 24 Feb 2024
