    “If you call me, I’ll come. If you told me to fly, I’d follow you through the air like grass in the wind…”

    A wedding is set. A blood vow is broken. The wrath of a village is unleashed…

    Set amid sun-baked hillsides and sprawling rural planes, Federico García Lorca’s explosive Blood Wedding explores the unquenchable, forbidden passion that tears through the heart of a local couple’s impending marriage with ferocious consequences.

    Riven with passion and hot blood, this is a tale that is both mysterious and elemental; spirited and human. Written by the author of The House of Bernarda Alba and Yerma, in the summer of 1932, Lorca’s original Blood Wedding foreshadowed the violence that would soon engulf his beloved home and lead to his own tragic death.

    In this version, performed by graduating students of Bristol School of Acting, Harlem Renaissance originator Langston Hughes infuses the story with a deep-set, earthly poetry  and Jack Drewry’s original composition, that breathes new life into this age-old collision of love and hate.
