Los Angeles Mission College Theatre Arts will present its fall production, Blood Wedding, the classic romantic tragedy by Spanish playwright Federico García Lorca, translated by Langston Hughes.
In a small village in Spain, a young man has decided to marry a young woman from a neighboring town. However, the young woman is secretly still in love with Leonardo, a member of the Felix family, the murderers of the young man's father and brother. The wedding proceeds, but as the guests celebrate the union, passion takes over, secrets are revealed, and choices are made that create havoc and more bloodshed. Langston Hughes's rarely-performed translation of Blood Wedding is a gripping balance of romantic ideals, melodramatic circumstances, and the poetic surrealism that is a hallmark of Lorca's work.
Blood Wedding is directed by LACCD theatre instructor Christian Barillas (featured actor on Modern Family, The Handmaid's Tale). Guest actors include Tony Award-winner Leilani Jones Wilmore and prolific Puerto Rican performer Yvonne Caro Caro (Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights).
