Fordham Theatre’s Associate Clinical Professor Dawn Akemi Saito helms Caridad Svich’s powerful translation of Federico García Lorca’s 20th-century tragedy, set in a cloistered world where a tyrannical mother dominates her five unmarried daughters—all of whom harbor a secret passion for one man—who rebel against their imprisonment in an explosion of passion, jealousy, and hatred. Originally set in 1930s Spain, Saito’s abstract, impressionistic take, with scenic design by Fordham Theatre’s Interim Head of Design and Production Mark Wendland, will parallel the struggles of women now in this cautionary tale of the consequences of oppression.
