Federico Garc?a Lorca, translated by Lillian Groag
Linden Kildare CISD
In Tanya Ronder’s spare, yet strikingly beautiful modern translation Lorca’s Blood Wedding finds a refreshing new and compelling poetic world while retaining its sumptuous language and volcanic passion. Written in 1932, Lorca’s classic play was inspired by local newspaper coverage of a runaway bride whose rekindled flame with a childhood sweetheart and sworn family enemy spiraled into wedding day catastrophe. Lorca’s sensuous and deeply conflicted exploration of desire, rebellion and retribution comes to life in this ensemble-driven production.
