Three tragedies by Lorca: Blood Wedding: a play of love that cannot become marriage among the primitive hill people of Castile. Yerma: a play of a woman's struggles and the problem of frustrated motherhood. Bernarda Alba: this play tells of the repression of five daughters by a domineering mother, of how their natural spirits circumvent her but bring violence and death.

Federico Garcia Lorca was a Spanish poet and playwright, and outspoken Socialist, who was executed by the Nationalist forces in the first months of the Spanish Civil War.
