Director's Concept - Pitch to Theater Company
Blood Wedding by Federico Garcia Lorca is a dark alley. As a mother and father of their own respective families discuss the future of their children, relationships are portrayed and characters are formed. As the audience follows along with the two characters, they start to realize the roles of these people in society and start to consider these circumstances in their own lives. A daughter and son of different families have agreed to marry each other, and now their parents meet to discuss this important step in their lives. There is more to the play than what is shown on stage as each character is hiding more than they are allowing themselves to show. As a brief two person scene, Blood Wedding allows for speculation and forces the audience to be creative and innovative. Once people have watched the play they are able to discuss their own artistic interpretation and interaction between themselves and the actors.
