Federico Lorca’s Blood Wedding. In a version by Ted Hughes Directed By Liz Steer.
Performances Wednesday 26 – Saturday 29 October 2011. The October production will be Lorca’s Blood Wedding in the adaptation by Ted Hughes, directed by Liz Steer.
Under the blistering sun of southern Spain a family gathers for a wedding.
It is the early 1930s, and all relationships are governed by unforgiving rules of blood and honour.
When an ex-lover of the bride appears, a long-standing family feud is reignited, stirring up old passions, revealing dark secrets and leading inevitably to violent revenge.
Lorca’s atmospheric play, filled with passion and symbolism, was inspired by the true story of a fatal feud between two families high in the mountains of rural Spain.
Award-winning Southside players fuse the colour and vibrancy of Lorca’s Andalusia with the powerful poetry in Ted Hughes’ adaptation.
The production will be staged simply using symbolism, colours and incorporating movement, music and dance.
Auditions are now complete and rehearsals under way. Please contact Liz on Lizsteer@hotmail.co.uk if you are interested in helping out or require further information.
Directed by Liz Steer to be performed 26 – 29 October 2011.
