Now, Lorca's tale of feuding families and repressed love is returning to London. The Young Vic has announced a new version of Blood Wedding as part of 2019 season. Olivier Award nominee Yaël Farber (The Crucible, The Old Vic) will direct Marina Carr’s version of the play, which promises to be an intensely passionate tale. The show's website warns: 'we’re all curious about what might hurt us…'
The Young Vic has brilliant form with Lorca’s works: their 2016 production of Yerma, starring Billie Piper, received rave reviews. Yerma and Blood Wedding were designed as the first two parts of Lorca’s ‘trilogy of the Spanish earth’ – his tragic execution in the Spanish Civil War unfortunately prevented him from completing this vision. It is not yet known if Blood Wedding will be updated to reflect modern day London to the same extent as Yerma, but if it is anything near as good as its predecessor, we are in for a treat. Tickets are available for booking now.
