Description

Written by Migdalia Cruz

Directed by Cecilie Keenan

A fiercely provocative twist on a Lorca classic that takes you to a part of the house where no one dares go. After the death of their father, five sisters are forced into eight years of mourning by their mother Bernarda. In the stifling heat, desires, dark secrets and jealousy escalate while their sex starved 80 year-old grandmother is in love with the mysterious and forbidden man. In an attempt to find happiness with her lover she entices her youngest granddaughter to plot their escape from Bernarda’s tyranny. Featuring Teatro Vista ensemble members Charin Alvarez, Laura Crotte, Sandra Marquez and Juan Villa with Julia Neary, Rachel Cerda, Tanya Saracho, Lily Mojekwu, and Ilana Faust. For this production Teatro Vista has extended a special invitation to visual artist Luis DeLaTorre to create a spectrum of dramatic visuals.
