“Act 1, Act Tú”

Bilingual Theater program


Bodas de sangre

(English: Blood Wedding)
play by Federico García Lorca


In 1920s rural Spain, a Bride faces an impossible choice: follow society’s expectations and marry her Bridegroom, or follow her heart and be with Leonardo despite the hatred her family has for his. Federico Garcia Lorca weaves a tragic tale that explores the consequences of a society that views marriage as a means of profit rather than love, and it expertly addresses the topics of love, sexuality, and violence through the lens of marriage. NOTE: this production is performed in Spanish.
