UN Theater Arts will broadcast the production of “The House of Bernarda Alba” live


ADA, Ohio – The Ohio Northern University School of Visual and Performing Arts will present a production of “The House of Bernarda Alba” by Spanish playwright Federico García Lorca from February 26-28 via a live stream on freedcenter .com. Performances will be at 7:30 p.m. on February 26 and 27, with matinee performances at 2 p.m. on February 27 and 28.

After the death of the family patriarch, well-to-do widow Bernarda Alba is determined to enforce social ownership of the household and exerts unyielding control over the lives of her five adult daughters. In a theme underscored by a pandemic-era production, women are cut off from the outside world until a blossoming romance threatens to tear down the walls that enclose them. A rarely produced masterpiece (in a lean and powerful translation by Caridad Svich), “The House of Bernarda Alba” is a story of women locked in a struggle with a mortal legacy, where wealth and status are inseparable from isolation and shame.

Tickets are $10 per device and $5 for students. To order, visit freedcenter.com or call the box office at 419-772-1900.

“The House of Bernalda Alba” is directed by Cait Robinson, Drama League New York Directing Fellow and head of the college’s summer intensive program at the Cape Cod Theater Project. “This piece is increasingly relevant,” says Robinson, “This COVID-compliant production explores the effects that isolation can have and how difficult it can be to break free from toxic situations when you are so isolated. .”

“The House of Bernarda Alba” will be performed by a cast of 12 UN students, including Maggie Rucki, a double major in musical theater and communications from Findlay, Ohio, as Poncia; Kathryn Urosevich, a sophomore in musical theater and double major in history from Huntley, Illinois, as Bernarda Alba; Emily Estep, a musical theater major from Fresno, Calif., as Angustias; Serena Chiappelli, a junior musical theater student from Clarkston, Michigan, as Adela; and Dani Miller, a second musical theater student from Charlottesville, Va., as Martirio.
