As part of her ongoing post-show Q&A series, on Wednesday 12 September 2018, Mates co-founder Terri Paddock returns to Clapham’s Omnibus Theatre for a new modern take on Lorca classic Blood Wedding. Got any questions?

Celebrated Spanish dramatist Federico García Lorca’s 1932 folk tragedy is deftly pulled into sharp focus in this dark and seductive re-imagining.

Think it’ll get better? You know it’s a lie.
We’re burning up inside and it’s destroying us both.

What happens when it’s too late to escape – then you open the door and run?
Will fate cut you down? Will you ever breathe easily again?

Lorca’s classic tragedy is relocated to modern-day London. This contemporary adaptation of passion and vendetta explosively blends grit, fate and claustrophobia, with a streak of dark humour. A play for our fractured times, it also explores cultural divisions and the power of community.

Truth and oil always come to the surface…

This new version of Blood Wedding, adapted and directed by George Richmond Scott, is told in a bold physical style with original live music by Camilla Mathias and movement by Patricia Suarez.

For the Blood Wedding Q&A on Wednesday 12 September 2018, Terri is joined by George Richmond Scott and other members of the company.
