The House Of Bernarda Alba Patricia Cornelius , 2018 single work drama

'With their mining-mogul father dead, the Alba household is in mourning. All four daughters have been called home to pay their respects by their mother, Bernarda, who is truly a force of nature.

'The future seems wildly uncertain for all but the eldest sister, who has inherited a fortune and is engaged to the local heartthrob. But as tensions rise and tempers flare, will any of them have the power to alter their own destinies?' (Production summary)


  • The House of Bernarda Alba is included in AustLit because of an Australian-written adaptation.
