The Sunken Garden provided the perfect backdrop to Federico García Lorca’s ‘Blood Wedding’, this year’s Summer Play.
Our pupils gave six memorable performances across three days with a number of them rotating roles between the principle characters.
For this immersive show, audience members were asked to wear full wedding attire as though they were attending an actual wedding. Guests were welcomed with a reception drink with the cast already in character, enjoyed a slice of wedding cake and, halfway through the performance, were invited to be included in group photos by the play’s own photographer.
Lorca’s masterpiece explores faith and fate as the wedding of George and Abigail takes place under the watchful gaze of the Moon.
Well done to all involved in the production.
