Inspired by the tragic events of a true story, Blood Wedding is a haunting tale of love, deceit, fate and vengeance. A mother; still grieving for the loss of her husband who was stabbed and killed during a feud with the rival Felix family, finds her son is due to marry. an ex-lover of a Felix. But he is happy to let the past rest, for love... for now.
On the wedding night two lovers ride off on horseback. The Moon and Death, the puppet masters of the piece, overlook it all and ensure our protagonists meet their final destiny.
"With direction by Bronagh Lagan, the storyline follows that of love and betrayal, which this production superlatively captivates making for an emotional thought provoking piece." - BACKSTAGE PASS
"Lorca's writing is inherently poetic, tumbling over the page with a beautifully tortured grace, mirrored here with the use of physical theatre, dance and music laced through the production." - FOURTHWALL MAGAZINE
"Beautifully orchestrated, Lagan utilises Rodriguez-Weil's triumph with characters entering and exiting the stage intermittently." - A YOUNGER THEATRE
"Richly layered and sizzling with seductive, sexual energy, this production is a feast for the senses, and for the mind, it will leave the theatregoer's soul rent in two by the end." - HACKNEY HIVE
"The play seems to emerge quite directly from the minds of the players and is refreshingly engaging and experimental." - PLAYS TO SEE
