I have written a new version of Federico Garcia Lorca’s Blood Wedding for Anglia Ruskin University, which will be performed by the University’s 2nd year Drama students at the Mumford Theatre, Cambridge, in January 2017. (cast pictured below)
This is my first adaptation of another playwright’s work, and it’s been a daunting challenge, as Lorca was such a great writer with a distinctive style so very different to mine. My version still takes place in Spain, but is set a few years later, in the 1940s, with General Franco very much in charge of a country haunted by the dead of the Civil War.
Blood Wedding is directed by Andrew Pritchard (who directed my play Protect and Survive at VAULT Festival 2016) and is being performed as a double bill with another play, Upwardly Down. Performances are at 7.30pm on Friday the 20th and Saturday the 21st of January 2017. Tickets are available to book online here.
