Young Vic Theatre

London

From the extraordinary creative vision of acclaimed director Yaël Farber (Les Blancs, Mies Julie, The Crucible) comes this evocative and visceral production of Federico García Lorca’s most famous tragedy, in a new adaptation by the multi award-winning Irish playwright Marina Carr.

A bride promised. A blood vow broken. The vengeance of a village unleashed.

Passions and traditions collide with unstoppable consequences as the mysteries of love and hate are explored against the backdrop of a community gearing up to unleash these elemental forces upon itself. What’s done cannot be undone.

Written in the summer of 1932, Lorca’s original Blood Wedding foreshadows the violence that would soon both tear his beloved country apart, and lead to his own tragic end.

In this brand new adaptation, set in a rural village of parched mountains and planes, Lorca’s meditation on the fate of the individual versus society is conjured into visceral new life. A warning for our times.

I want you green. Green wind, green branches. Boat on the ocean. Horse on the mountain.

With Bríd Brennan, Scarlett Brookes, Gavin Drea, Aoife Duffin, Annie Firbank, Olwen Fouéré, Faaiz Mbelizi, Roger Jean Nsengiyumva, Steffan Rhodri, Thalissa Teixeira, David Walmsley
