The House of Bernarda Alba - Scottish tour trailer 2009

A National Theatre of Scotland production of one of the most celebrated European dramas of the 20th century. A new version by Rona Munro. The play was finished by Federico Garcia Lorca shortly before he was executed in Spain for his left-wing politics. He described it as a "drama of women in the villages of Spain" - a theme that is electrifyingly transposed in this version to the tough communities of Glasgows East End.
