Activity on the new small stage continues to heat up. The third entry in the new stage’s repertoire is an old chestnut, the deeply dramatic House of Bernarda Alba, by the great, doomed Spanish poet Federico Garcia Lorca. The play was completed just two months before Garcia Lorca was assassinated in 1936 during the Spanish Civil War. It features over two dozen women characters and nary a single man as it tells the story of a domineering, aging matron who attempts to hold her household full of daughters in check after the death of her husband. The play is directed by Alisa Seletskaya, a graduate of Boris Yukhananov’s Studio of Individual Directing (MIR).
