'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.
