A production of London’s Cervantes Theatre, the performances will be in Spanish with English subtitles.
The play explores themes of repression, passion and conformity through the depiction of a matriarch’s domination of her five daughters. Written in 1936 just before the civil war broke out, the play was first performed in Buenos Aires in 1945. It was banned in Spain until 1963.
