Blood Wedding

By Federico García Lorca
Translated by Langston Hughes and Adapted by Melia Bensussen
Performance Dates: November 2, 3, 9 & 10 at 7:30 PM
November 11 at 2:00 PM
Location: University Theatre
The arid lands of rural southern Spain inspired Federico García Lorca to write his greatest tragedy, Blood Wedding. This classic drama of betrayal and murder is based on the true crime story of a runaway bride who, in 1928, fled from her arranged marriage on horseback to be with her true love. Lorca entangles these lovers in an age-old blood feud, a curse on the entire community. His poetic diction and rich imagery infuse the story with the fire and power, that spirit of duende, characteristic of his work and with a prophetic resonance that marked his own tragically short life.

"The meek floral assistant Seymour Krelborn stumbles across a new breed of plant he names "Audrey II" - after his coworker crush. This foul-mouthed, R&B-singing carnivore promises unending fame and fortune to the down and out Krelborn as long as he keeps feeding it, BLOOD. Over time, though, Seymour discovers Audrey II's out of his world origins and intent towards global domination!"
