In the scorching heat of Southern Spain, five daughters live under the tyrannical rule of their embittered mother. When the father of four of the girls dies, a cynical marriage is proposed, exposing desires and tensions among the sisters. This poetic tragedy is given a stark and contemporary treatment by David Hare’s recent translation and an ensemble amateur production with live music.
