Blood Wedding at Walkerspace

Woodshed Collective presents Blood Wedding, by Frederico Garcia Lorca and translated by Lillian Groag, opens at Walkerspace on 25 Jul 2006, following previews from from 21 Jul and running through to 5 Aug 2006.

Blood Wedding, directed by Stephen Squibb and Gabriel Hainer Evansohn, involves two families in a semi-mythical rural Spain who are intricately bound in an unbreakable cycle of murder and revenge. The death-bound love triangle at the center of the play fuels these passions to a fever pitch and propels the story to its unstoppable tragic conclusion.

An arranged country marriage between the children of rich landowners is about to take place. A past lover, himself in a loveless marriage, cannot allow the wedding to take place and spirits the Bride away, who goes with him willingly on her wedding night. An entire town goes after the lovers in the middle of the night where pursuers and pursued plunge into a realm of deep darkness where the moonlight is not friendly and the forest not shelter enough.
