Metta Theatre presents Blood Wedding by Federico Garcia Lorca

Metta Theatre presents Blood Wedding by Federico Garcia Lorca Marlon Day and Jade Anouk

Welcome to the wedding! Food and drink. Song and dance.
Join us for a night of revelry and celebration.

Here are bride and groom preparing for the ceremony. Here are their families, the wedding feast, the decorations. Here is Leonardo, the man they say the bride really loves.

Metta Theatre's striking and immersive new production of Blood Wedding puts you [the audience] at the heart of the action. You become the guests at the ill-fated wedding feast, and witnesses of the tragedy that follows.

This is a sweaty, colourful, raucous world, but death lurks in the shadows. Before the night is over there will be heartbreak, bloodshed and tragedy. A secret waits to be discovered...

The cast includes Jade Anouka (A Midsummer Night's Dream, The Merchant Of Venice, The Taming Of The Shrew, RSC) as the bride, Marlon G Day (The Fallen, Channel Four) as Leonardo, Amanda Posener (Bad Girls - The Musical, Garrick Theatre; Caroline or Change, National Theatre) as his wife, Sophie Benjamin (Citizenship, National Theatre; Gone Too Far, Royal Court) as the sister, Trevor Michael Georges (Carmen Jones, Old Vic; Once On This Island, Young Vic) as the father.

Blood Wedding will be at the Southwark Playhouse from 21 July to 15 August, 2009 at 7.30pm.

Venue: Southwark Playhouse, Shipwright Yard, (Corner of Tooley St. and Bermondsey St.) London SE1 2TF
