La Casa de Bernarda Alba is a drama of women in the villages of Spain in the early 1930s, a great critical reflection on the customs of that time. The tyranny of the supposed honor and social norms are represented with great realism in the character of Bernarda, who drowns out the desire for freedom and life of the youngest of her daughters.
