We’re thrilled to be partnering with Aluna Theatre to present this rarely produced translation by Langston Hughes of Federico García Lorca’s ‘Blood Wedding (Bodas de Sangre)’. A 12 person ensemble, directed and choreographed by our own Soheil Parsa, brings Lorca’s classic of 20th century theatre to life.
Blood Wedding recounts a family vendetta that comes to a boil when a bride-to-be runs away with the son of the enemy. Their ill-fated romance sparks a poetic exploration of the conflict between desire and social convention.
We’re about to enter our third week of rehearsals with a tremendously talented cast and production team. Ladies and gentlemen, here’s your #BloodWeddingTO roster…
