‘Blood Wedding’ to be performed by CCU students

“Blood Wedding,” a Spanish tragedy play by Federico Garcia Lorca, will be performed by Coastal Carolina University students from Thursday, April 3, through Saturday, April 12, in the Edwards Theatre on the CCU campus. The public is invited; tickets are required.

The story is based on a newspaper story detailing a son and a daughter of feuding families running away together. The play investigates the subjects of desire, repression and Spanish custom all within the constraints and commitments of the rural Spanish community in which it is rooted.

The play is directed by Matthew Earnest, an American theater director. Earnest has also written plays, as well as adapted plays from short stories and essays, and has translated works in other languages for his direction. He has directed his own plays as well. In 2012, he co-founded an international touring company, The Lunar Strategem. His productions have been seen across the U.S., Europe and Africa.

The musical director is Michael Gribbin, CCU assistant professor of theatre. The assistants to the director are AJ Gardner and Miranda Frederick. The stage manager is Brian Marshall; the assistant stage manager, Sammy Papp.
