The UK regional premiere of Homestead by Steven Dykes, based on The House Of Bernarda Alba by Frederico García Lorca.

Programmed in partnership with Brighton Festival.

Set in the American South of the turbulent 1950s, Homestead is a thrilling reimagining of Lorca’s masterpiece of desire and betrayal. A fatal collision of frontier values and post-war dreams. Communal hymns and boys with cars. Church elders and Elvis Presley.

Following the death of their father and governed by their mother’s Primitive Baptist faith, the five Beckman daughters face a lengthy confinement within the walls of their remote Texan homestead. The youngest daughter’s passionate defiance of religious convention, however, soon unleashes the pent up jealousy and sexual frustration of the all female household.

Conor Baum (Shakespeare’s Globe) directs the UK regional premiere of this extraordinary reinvention of Lorca’s tragic story of oppression, desire and rebellion in an all-new outdoor production for Brighton Open Air Theatre’s 10th anniversary season.
