Text by Krista Driscoll
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.
