In this great modern Spanish tragedy, Bernarda is a stern matriarch obsessed with family honor. Just widowed, she announces to her five daughters that they will enter a traditional eight-year period of cloistered mourning. Each daughter desires love, but with the doors clamped shut, they silently turn to other pursuits-except one, who pursues an affair with the betrothed of the eldest daughter. Discovery results in a tragic climax that is unrelenting in its severity and terror.

"...From this writer’s point of view, it is possible that this modern interpretation of a classic play might not appeal to all, but could be interesting to an audience who values the culture of Riot Girrrl, punk music and an alternative approach of Lorca´s work. For those, like this writer, who have a deep appreciation for the classic as originally written, this very modern twist is not especially an improvement."
