Lent Week 4
On 22nd July 1928 in the dusty heat of Andalusia, a young bride flees with her ex-lover on her wedding night to a dank forest where death waits.
Based on a true story, one of the 20th century's most celebrated writers, F.G Lorca, uses the 'crime of Nijar' to investigate illicit desire, repression, ritual, and constraints of the community. Using a bold new translation, a large cast fuse music, drama, poetry and electro-tango to present a dark and poetic vision of love as a precursor to betrayal and violence.
