Lorca offers his poetic and disturbing personal vision of Spanish life in the 1930's. In a society where all weddings are blood weddings, this classical tragedy, starkly plotted, offers all the traditional elements of ill fated lovers and family feuds. With The Bacchae and Hedda Gabler, Blood Wedding forms part of 2012's unique trilogy of plays, Festival of Chaos. A two month celebration in Northampton, the Festival explores the contemporary relevance of the god Dionysus.Performers Robert Benfield, Liam Bergin, Donna Berlin, Jim Bywater, Philip Cairns, Rosie Ede, Alicia Davies, Seline Hizli, Ery Nzaramba, Kathryn Pogson, Amanda Wilkin.
