Federico García Lorca’s powerful play of sexual repression and sibling jealousy is given an impressive production by director Claude Whatham. Mary Morris captures the full uncompromising force of Bernarda, a woman determined to bring her daughters to heel and uphold the tyrannical traditions by which she and her community have always lived. Such tyranny, however, comes at a terrible cost.
