FOLLOWING two weeks in Drama on 3Federico Garcia Lorca 1936 is with Cervantes the best known figure in Spanish literature Written in 1936 and completed just a few months before is execution The House of Bernarda Alba is Lorca s final tragedyI liked it but I still prefer the original play 35Altogether I liked this play I wasn t entirely moved by it but I think I might prefer to see it performed live On paper several of the main female characters blended together which muddled up their motivations and personalities but I think on stage the various actors choices may lend themselves to create distinct individuals Ultimately it just made me sad that these women all shared the same obsession over this mystery man who to be Talk to Me honest doesn t sound all that great This obsession ultimately led to the dissolution and demise of the family and basically NO characters get any sort of redemption However I do love a good dramatic play and this oneit all the points lies deception death mourning family and a secret love affair I Silver Mortal (The Gracen Chronicles, have a funny relationship with this play It was this tragedy we found when searching for a play with several female main roles in our Drama course And even funnier I played the infamous and despotic Bernarda Alba So yeah After a year of practicing and learning and adding and crossing out lines and after several performances of different length of this play I cannotelp but really like it And as awful as Bernarda Alba is it was a great pleasure to play Educating for the New World Order her to play such a cruel character in general This is the second of Lorca s rural trilogy Iave read and if anything I liked it even than Bodas de Sangre In form and theme the two are uite similar Like a Greek tragedy the plot is simplicity itself with one obvious conflict and one calamitous resolution Again Lorca s power as a dramatist comes not from subtlety or wit but from pure passion The incompatibility between traditional values and uman impulses with all its tragic implications is laid bare by Lorca who shows us a culture whose religious s and gender norms oppress women and deprive them of a fulfilling life Strikingly the cast of characters is entirely female even though the conflict revolves around a male who is always offstage This allows Lorca to focus on a side of life that was often swept aside while maintaining an atmosphere of tension and constraint that makes the play so riveting I am excited for Yerma A tense tragedy about the devastating conseuences of authoritarian rule and sexual repression Classical in its intensity the play dramatizes an Andalusian mother s draconian attempts to control er five adult daughters following the death of The Character Of An Upright Man herusband Bernada Alba tightens Mr. Malcolms List her already firm grasp oner daughters lives from forbidding them to leave the GURPS Conspiracy X home to controllingow they communicate with each other Chaos ensues the daughters turn against Bernada as well as each other and.
