Blood Wedding - Waterloo East Theatre
Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle
HIRAETH Artistic Productions is presenting Federico Garcia Lorca’s surreal masterpiece, Blood Wedding (Bodas de Sangra) at Waterloo East Theatre – from June 12 to July 7, 2013.
Spain, 1931, a feud between families is set to be appeased by a marriage of good means.
But in the heat of the Andalusian countryside, a young girl, bound by her societal duty to matrimony, perilously wrestles with her instinct, setting into motion a rampant trail of retribution, surrealism and revenge which will culminate in an irretrievably brutal climax.
Will she consummate her marriage, or will she run with another?
From the company that created the critically acclaimed Romeo and Juliet, Titus Andronicus and A Life in the Theatre, comes what is described as a sensual and violently provocative envisioning of one of Spain’s most infamous plays.
Blood Wedding is directed by Zoé Ford and translated by Gwynne Edwards.
Tickets: £14, £12 concessions, Tuesday £10. Available online at www.waterlooeast.co.uk/.
Times: Tuesday to Saturday at 7.30pm, Sunday at 4pm.
