An explosive story of love and regret. 

Lorca’s Blood Wedding is based on a newspaper fragment which told of a family vendetta and a bride who ran away with the son of the enemy family. Lorca writes with poetic authenticity saying: “My whole childhood was centred on the village: shepherds, fields, sky, solitude. Total simplicity. I have a huge storehouse of childhood recollections in which I can hear the people speaking. This is poetic memory, and I trust it implicitly”. Blood Wedding captures the rhythms of a rural community in this searing classic of twentieth century poetic theatre.
