Blood Wedding – Manchester Youth Theatre

Written by Ted Hughes/Frederico Garcia Lorca

Directed by Bill Hopkinson

Performed in Royal Exchange Studio

We used Ted Hughes version of this classic Lorca play set in the north of England rather than the original Spain. The studio was set up in traverse with the forest at one end and the homestead at the other. The trees were created with chickenwire woven with twigs and fabrics, some standing, some hanging.

This production was part of the season that Manchester Youth Theatre won a Special Manchester Evening News Award for in 1999.
