Slow, Beautiful

See it if you want to experience a visually stunning production (albeit offset by the slowness of pace)

Don't see it if you think you'll struggle to understand thick accents or think you might fall asleep watching an extra slow play Read more

Bizarre, Edgy, Ambitious

See it if you like a production that is different, quite intense and anything but classic

Don't see it if you prefer a play that you can follow and get the gist of without having to do a lot of pre-reading

Bold and beautiful tale of doom...Yaël Farber’s visceral production, relocating the action to rural Ireland, retains all the potency of Lorca’s play about tribal vengeance.'

Yes, it loses some narrative grip near the end as the blood flows and the symbolism rises, but mostly Farber’s daring sustains an evening of magical realism that is beautiful but brutal.'

The Stage (UK)
September 25th, 2019

The marriage of Yaël Farber with Marina Carr should be a transcendent thing – and, mostly, it is. But, like the eponymous wedding in Federico García Lorca’s tragic play, it also falls apart towards the end.'

Time Out London
September 26th, 2019

There are electric moments, particularly whenever Thalissa Teixeria’s white-suited Moon takes to the stage...But ‘Blood Wedding’ is often so bluntly miserable as to become numbing: an oppressive pile-up of tragedy.'

The best moments are fleet and wondrous...But they're small rays of invention peppered in a near-two-hour production that yearns for more.'

Inventive, poetic if over-stretched revival of Lorca's rural tragedy... The strong ensemble relish Carr's language, a satisfying mixture of the darkly comic and the metaphorically foreboding...'
