The Summit High School Performing Arts Department will present two more showings of the fall play “Blood Wedding,” a tragedy by Federico Garcia Lorca, at 7 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 22, and 2 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 23.

When the widow of a murdered farmer discovers her only surviving son has secretly pledged himself in marriage to a mysterious young maiden, she must embrace the fate of her family’s legacy. A Bridegroom, a Bride and a murderous hunter, Leonardo, embark upon a love triangle that results in tragedy for the entire community. Guided by the Moon and two Woodcutters, who predict the play’s tragic but inevitable outcome, the families of these star-crossed lovers are forever marked by the blood of one wedding eve.

The play explores themes of revenge, sensuality and death, which may not be appropriate for young audiences. Search “Blood Wedding” at for the whole story.
