Theatre Arts department presents Blood Wedding

Jan. 30, 2003

WHAT: Blood Wedding, by Federico Garica Lorca. Directed by Martha Johnson.

In Blood Wedding, Spain's legendary poet Federico Garcia Lorca explores the fierce tension that arises between oppressive, primitive tradition and natural human longings and desires. Sensual and intense, the play ranges in style from realism to surrealism and is a lyrical combination of poetry, drama, song, and dance. Lorca based Blood Wedding on a true story, and the play premiered in Madrid in 1933, just before the outbreak of the Spanish Civil War.

WHEN: January 31, Feb. 1, 6, 7 and 8 at 7 p.m.; Feb. 2 and 9 at 2 p.m.

WHERE: Tjornhom-Nelson Theatre, Foss Center.
