About The Production:

With their mining-mogul father dead, the Alba household is in mourning. All four daughters have been called home by their matriarch mother to pay their respects and bunker down in the family home. The future seems wildly uncertain for all but the eldest sister, who has inherited a fortune and is engaged to the local heartthrob. But as tensions rise and tempers flare, will any of them have the power to alter their destiny?

Renowned playwright Patricia Cornelius takes Federico García Lorca’s classic tragedy out of the villages of Spain and into the heat of rural Western Australia to explore themes of passion, repression and isolation in an exhilarating adaptation directed by Leticia Cáceres(The DistanceThe Effect) with a powerhouse cast including Candy Bowers (Lilith: The Jungle Girl), Peta Brady (SHIT), Julie Forsyth (Endgame), Bessie Holland (Wentworth), Sue Jones (Minnie and Liraz), and Emily Milledge (Joan) with Melita Jurisic (John) starring as the family matriarch.
