by Federico García Lorca and Alice Birch

You bring such scandal to my house.

In the domain of Bernarda Alba, a daughter who disobeys is no longer a daughter. Forced to live under their mother's tight grip as they mourn their father's death, can five sisters survive when young Adela dares for passion and freedom?

Olivier Award-winner Harriet Walter (Succession) plays the formidable matriarch, guarding her reputation against the rising tide of her family's desires in this pitch-black drama exploring the consequences of oppressing women, in Alice Birch's radical new version of Federico García Lorca's modern masterpiece.

This edition published to coincide with the world premiere at the National Theatre, London, in November 2023.

Paperback, 232 pages
