Federico Garcia Lorca (1898 – 1936) is one of the most prominent poets and playwrights in Spanish culture, and the play "Bernard Albas House" is mentioned as one of his creations.
V. Meikšāns compared the poetic text of Lork's play with tango rhythms, translated by the poet Edvīns Raups to the Liepaja Theater production.
"Bernard Albas Nams" will be the story of women in the men's world. After her husband's death Bernard Albas's house is proclaimed mourning. Her daughters are subject to maternal laws, control, and ironwork. When the eldest daughter is given the opportunity to get together, Bernard's house begins to divorce – both the disagreements between nurses and the love of the sister's bridegroom, who are scared by several of them, break in.
"I am interested in the world of women. And the attempt process – with so many actresses – is already an adventure in itself. Lorca is a passionate writer, and passion will be in the upcoming show. The material is designed so that the situation is heated to the maximum; of course – in circumstances where the energy of so many women is in prison in the four walls, the bombing just has to take place. This is a Spanish song, so the actors have also set themselves in a different speed, dynamism, and emotionality, "says V. Meiksāns.
"We read the story and looked at the character of the image realistically, but the elements of conditionality will not fail."
Actors Inese Kucinska, Anda Albuže, Sigita Jevgļevska, Laura Jeruma, Agnese Jēkabsone, Samira Adgezalova, Karīna Tatarinova, Elza Gauja (for whom this will debut on the stage of the Liepaja theater), Victor Eller, Peter Lapins.
