Una Historia Bonita de Sangre : Blood Wedding @ Fullerton
Lorca's tragic tale of an ill-fated wedding got its inspiration from gruesome newspaper clippings from southern Spain, and we are led to believe Blood Wedding occurs in a similar location. We in the audience are transported to another time, place, and culture through the use of dual-language storytelling techniques. The back and forth dialogue of Spanish and English is entertaining and effective in telling a story that is, while occasionally confusing, ultimately enjoyable.
