"Blanquisma room inside Bernarda's house. Thick walls. Arched doors with jute curtains topped with strawberry trees and ruffles. Cattail chair. Pictures with unlikely landscapes of nymphs or kings of legend. It is summer. A great shady silence spreads across the stage. When the curtain rises, the scene is alone. You hear the bells toll."
"The house of Bernarda Alba", Federico García Lorca.
