Written in 1927, Mariana Pineda
is Lorca's second play and is based on the true story of the anti-royalist conspirator Mariana Pineda, who was executed in 1831. The play is a haunting and lyrical homage to the romance of the writer's native Andalucia, and to the courage of an extraordinary woman. A fascinating insight into Lorca's early work.Performers Rachel Atkins, Leila Birch, Geoff Breton, Pandora Colin, Jonathan Dunstan, Rachel Edwards, Christopher Hehir, Daniel Kanaber, Patrick Lynch, Ben Nathan, Ruth Posner.
