A classic of twentieth-century theatre, Lorca’s Blood Wedding is based on a newspaper fragment which told of a family vendetta and a bride who ran away with the son of the enemy family. Lorca uses it to investigate the subjects which fascinate him: desire, repression, ritual and the constraints and commitments of the rural Spanish community in which the play is rooted. With visceral directness, Ted Hughes fuses Lorca’s vision to his own, and the result is a powerful, poetic text which captures all the violence and pathos of the play for an English-speaking audience.
