Edge Hill University Second Year Drama Students present A Season of Plays by Federico Garcia Lorca

The Theatre is a school of tears and laughter – Lorca

The greatest Spanish playwright of the twentieth century was murdered 80 years ago by fascists in the early days of the Spanish Civil War. In these plays, his three great masterpieces, love and loss, longing and duende, the spirit of the earth, fuse in passionate dances of life and death.

Blood Wedding
translated and adapted by David Johnston

An atmospheric new translation of Lorca’s evocative meditation on fate, internecine strife, tradition, passion and repression. Lorca was inspired by the true story of a fatal feud between two families in Almeria province. This powerful new version by Professor David Johnston stays close in spirit and letter to the original Spanish: he interprets Lorca’s orignal with marvellous directness, and the result is a powerful poetic text which captures all the violence and pathos of the play for an English-speaking audience.
