This Week: Blood Wedding
Everyman Theatre presents Blood Wedding by Federico Garcia Lorca, in a new version by Diana Almeida. Directed by Carmen Diana Almeida Eleno
Tuesday 3 – Saturday 7 May 2022 7.30pm at the Theatre, Chapter Arts Centre. Matinee performance at 2.30pm on Saturday.
In a small rural area, a man has decided to marry a young woman from a neighbouring village. However, the bride is secretly in love with someone else.
The wedding goes on and the guests start arriving, all while the bride is struggling with inner turmoil: can she be content in her choice of groom or will she be magnetically pulled to her other love, the enemy’s son? Secrets are revealed and choices are made that create chaos and havoc on the wedding day. Will the bride and groom end up together? Will the enemy prevail? How much blood will be spilled, and is it fate or is it chance?
Federico García Lorca’s Blood Wedding is a beautiful balance of traditional romantic tropes and unconventional circumstances mixed with a little magic.
