Nuria Espert's production of the house of Bernarda Alba ( Visual )
2 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Set in rural Spain at the turn of this century, the scene is a cloistered household managed by a newly widowed mother of five daughters. Under the shadow of the church and the tyranny bred from a need to protect the reputation of the family, the matron (Bernarda Alba) represses her daughters by enforcing an eight year mourning period. The tensions build rapidly among the imprisoned women, with a demented grandmother playing a role resembling that of a Greek chorus. Eventually, the natural spirits of the daughters circumvent Bernarda, but with tragic results

Three plays by Neil Bartlett ( Book )
5 editions published between 1993 and 2010 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume brings together three of his greatest plays. Britannicus, the earliest, is set in the court of the young Emperor Nero, and in an atmosphere seething with erotic tension, documents the power-struggles surrounding the birth of a legendary despot. Berenice probes the hearts of two lovers as they are torn apart amidst the splendours of Imperial Rome, and in Phedra, the most famous of the three, a woman betrayed by her own desires descends into a personal hell of shame, guilt and remorse. --
