Lipscomb Theatre’s 2018-19 season will wrap April 11-14 with “Blood Wedding” by Spanish playwright Federico García Lorca, in Shamblin Theatre.
Directed by Lipscomb adjunct professor and artistic associate for the Nashville Shakespeare Festival Santiago Sosa, Lorca’s 1930s tragedy is filled with themes about choice, deception, fate and nature, and all circles around a wedding and an epic family feud, said Baker.
“Lorca is to Spanish playwriting as Shakespeare is to English playwriting, and we are excited to bring an epic story like “Blood Wedding” to the Shamblin Theatre stage,” she continued. “Our students are very excited to work with Santiago Sosa, who is brilliant actor and coach, and will do a wonderful job bringing this work to life.”
Performances are April 11-13 at 7:30 p.m. and April 14 at 2:30 p.m. Ticket prices are $15 for adults, $10 for faculty/staff/alumni, and $5 for students. University Students receive one free ticket per show. For tickets, contact the Lipscomb Box Office at 615.966.7077.
