Think it’ll get better? You know it’s a lie. We’re burning up inside and it’s destroying us both. What happens when it’s too late to escape – then you open the door and run? Will fate cut you down? Will you ever breathe easily again?
Celebrated Spanish dramatist Federico García Lorca’s classic tragedy of familial conflict and fated love is pulled into sharp focus in this seductive and urgent re-imagining. Set in modern day London, this contemporary adaptation of passion and vendetta explosively blends grit, fate and claustrophobia, with a streak of dark humour. Performed in a bold physical style with original live music and movement.
Blood Wedding is at The Omnibus Theatre 4th – 23rd September 2018.
