Blood Wedding

7.45PM 18th-21st June 2003, Warwick Arts Centre

By Federico Garcia Lora
Translated by Ted Hughes

Directed by Robyn Smith, Warwick University Drama Society

One of the most powerful and innovative plays of the twentieth century, Blood Wedding is based on a true story of love, lust and betrayal about a couple drawn irresistibly together in the face of an arranged marriage.

A tragic and poetic play on which Lorca's international reputation was founded, the award-winning Warwick University Drama Society (WUDS) follow their sell-out production of Anna Karenina with a dramatic physical interpretation of a classic text lyrically translated by Ted Hughes.
