BLOOD WEDDING

by Federico García Lorca - Translation by Gwynne Edwards
Saturday 22 to Sunday 30 March 2014
Mary Wallace Theatre

A modern classic, this passion-fuelled play tells the story of a reluctant betrothal, a surprise elopement and a bloody revenge. It is a tale to both warm the heart and chill the bone. Complementing the poetic, visceral language, the group has composed original music with a traditional Spanish flavour, to be performed live on acoustic instruments. Add to this some ambitious physical theatre, stirring ensemble work and a liberal sprinkling of song and dance, and we can promise you a heady theatrical brew.
