Theater opens the Spring semester with their student series performance, Blood Wedding. The show is presented by Alpha Psi Omega, the Theatre Honor Society at PLU.
In this poetic tragedy, an arranged country marriage between the children of two rich, landowning families is endangered by the arrival of the bride’s former lover, reigniting a dramatic feud.
The play has been adapted in many different forms throughout the world, including opera, dance, and film adaptations.
With over 17 student performers, 7 students will be performing as either first-year students or new additions to the PLU stage.
“Blood Wedding is a truly unique play in its substance and style. It is beautiful in its language, enthralling story, and universal themes of conflict between human nature and societal ideals.”
“The performance is sure to provide for an engaging theatrical experience, designed and produced completely by PLU students,” James Clifford, student director (Class of ’19).
Blood Wedding runs February 28th through March 2nd at 7:30 p.m. and March 3rd at 2 p.m. in the Studio Theatre of the Karen Hille Phillips Center for the Performing Arts. Tickets are available online at Eventbrite. $5 – General admission; Free – 18 and younger.
Blood Wedding is intended for mature audiences.
