Dundee Rep Ensemble, Graeae and Derby Theatre present
Blood Wedding
by Federico Garcia Lorca in a new version by David Ireland
from the original translation by Sarah Wright

"rich and fascinating...a riot of dark observational comedy shading fiercely into tragedy" ★★★★ The Scotsman

"remarkably faithful to Lorca's original narrative, only with extra lashings of black humour" ★ The Herald Scotland

"a joint triumph for all those involved...gloriously politically incorrect, with wonderful self-deprecation" The Courier

In this day and age, anybody can love anybody.
Or are there still taboos?

David Ireland’s radical new take on Lorca’s play re-fuels this classic story with a contemporary twist. In an exciting new co-production between Dundee Rep Ensemble, Graeae and Derby Theatre, Jenny Sealey and David Ireland push this tale of searing lust, love and rebellion to its limits. When young lovers are overrun with passion, infatuation and defiance - the consequences are explosive.

Winner of the TMA’s ‘Promotion of Diversity Award’, Graeae is a force of change in world-class theatre. Multi-award-winning Artistic Director, Jenny Sealey MBE, has recently directed Reasons to be Cheerful and co-directed The Threepenny Opera. In 2012 she co-directed the London Paralympic Opening Ceremony. 

David Ireland is an award-winning writer, director and actor. He was born in Belfast, trained at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, and now lives in Glasgow.

Includes a creative combination of BSL interpretation, captioning and audio description.
