"I wanted to do The House of Bernarda Alba because I read this adaptation. I’ve read others that are very tricky and stilted, but David Hare brings it to life - it’s very of-the-moment. This is his most realistic play, but even so, having read some of the earlier versions, it’s difficult to get right. The wonderful thing about subsidised theatre is that it needs to be cared for. This is not a commercial piece, it needs a longer rehearsal time, and for all those reasons, I wanted to do it here." - Penelope Wilton (‘The House of Bernarda Alba’ at The National Theatre, 2005)
