Blood Wedding

By Frederico Garcia Lorca

Translated by Caridad Svich

Directed by Trustina Fafa Sabah

August 2019 - Outdoor Performances On Pagoda Hill in Patterson Park, Final Dates still being confirmed. Two consecutive weekends.

Rehearsals start in June and typically run Monday – Thursday evenings, with some Saturday times as well. There will also be a Puppetry Workshop for the cast during the rehearsal period.

Lorca's Blood Wedding is a classic of twentieth-century theatre. The story 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. In Lorca’s play the Bride and her former lover are chased into the woods by her betrothed where the two men confront each other. Blood Wedding is a passionate spectacle full of desire, repression, ritual, and the societal constraints of this rural community. We are excited to partner with the Friends of Patterson Park to present this vibrant piece entirely outdoors on Pagoda Hill in August of 2019.
