Federico Garcia Lorca's strident mother character, Bernarda Alba, has been murdered in a New Mexican desert - Or has she been murdered? Her surviving daughters writhe with opposing sentiments and gut wrenching physical reactions to her mysterious death. One must preserve tradition; one must release deep desires; one must attain vengeance; one must omit her wrath altogether; but all must deal with their mother's imprint.
