Drama Classics: The World's Great Plays at a Great Little Price

Federico García Lorca's extraordinarily powerful drama, the last he wrote before his assassination, explores the darkness at the heart of repression.

When Bernarda's husband dies, she locks all the doors and windows. She tells her grown-up daughters to sew and be silent. But locks can't hold back the growing tide of desire.

This English version of The House of Bernarda Alba, published in the Nick Hern Books Drama Classics series, is translated and introduced by Jo Clifford, and also contains a chronology and suggestions for further reading.

'There are eight years of mourning ahead of us. While it lasts not even the wind will get into this house.'
