The House of Bernarda Alba

By Federico García Lorca
Directed by Dawn Akemi Saito, Associate Clinical Professor, Theatre
Translation by Caridad Svich
Set Design by Mark Wendland, Interim Head of Design & Production, Theatre

Fordham Theatre’s Associate Clinical Professor Dawn Akemi Saito helms Caridad Svich’s powerful translation of Lorca’s 20th century tragedy set in a cloistered world where a tyrannical mother dominates her five unmarried daughters – all of whom harbor a secret passion for one man – who rebel against their imprisonment in an explosion of passion, jealousy, and hatred. Originally set in 1930’s Spain, Saito’s abstract, impressionistic take, with scenic design by Fordham Theatre’s Interim Head of Design & Production Mark Wendland, will parallel the struggles of women now in this cautionary tale of the consequences of oppression.
