By Federico García Lorca
Directed by Matt Ball
Lorca’s Blood Wedding is a classic of twentieth-century theatre. Inspired by a true story, it’s a haunting tale of forbidden love & blood feuds. In a small rural community, where everyone knows your business, and reputation is all, a bride runs away with her true love on her wedding day. The couple are chased by the bridegroom and the woodcutters with tragic results – all overseen by the moon and death.
Bath Spa University’s OnSet Productions presents this retelling of the Lorca’s classic.Blood Wedding was written in 1932 and first performed in Madrid in March 1933, and later that year in Buenos Aires. Theatre critics often group it with Yerma and The House of Bernarda Alba as the Rural Trilogy. Lorca’s plan for a “trilogy of the Spanish earth” remained unfinished at the time of his death (he did not include The House of Bernarda Alba in it)
