The House of Bernardo Alba

The HCC Players will put on a production of Federico Garcia Lorca's play, The House of Bernarda Alba, Thursday through Saturday, Nov. 15-17 at 8 p.m. in the Leslie Phillips Theater in the HCC Performing Arts Building. There will also be a matinee performance at 2:30 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 17.

The play takes place in a small village in southern Spain just before the start of the Spanish Civil War. Following the funeral of Bernarda Alba's second husband, this tyrannical matriarch announces to her five daughters that their period of mourning will last eight years. However, they all have a secret passion for Pepe el Romano, the handsomest man in the village.  Their jealousy, passion, fear and anger collide with Bernarda's obsession to protect family honor when the truth finally reveals itself with tragic consequences.

Ticket Prices: $10.00 general admission, $8.00 students and seniors, $5 HCC Community (students, faculty, staff).
