A tyrannical widow decrees her five daughters must be shut away from the world and mourn their father for eight years, thus creating a home where suppressed desires, familial secrets, jealousy, anger and fear rule. Step inside Lorca’s pressure cooker of a household, where the tension grows and grows until it implodes.
“We can practically feel the heat emanating from the veins of these desperate, sexually starved lonely women.”
