    A double-bill of theatre inspired by people and places. Federico García Lorca’s Blood Wedding is a masterpiece of twentieth-century theatre. Desire, repression, ritual, and the constraints of the rural Spanish community are at the heart of this classic tragedy. Upwardly Down is a visual experimentation with tea, technology and poetry taking us into the heart of Afghan refugee life in the Islamic Republic of Iran. Ambitious and creative refugee youth have taken to writing poetry to tell their story as a group and to improve their prospects for a better life.

    These performances will be assessed work by Anglia Ruskin University’s 2nd year Drama students.
