Celebrated Spanish dramatist Federico García Lorca’s 1932 folk tragedy is deftly pulled into sharp focus in this dark and seductive re-imagining.


Think it’ll get better? You know it’s a lie.

We’re burning up inside and it’s destroying us both.

What happens when it’s too late to escape – then you open the door and run?
Will fate cut you down? Will you ever breathe easily again?

Lorca’s classic tragedy is set in modern day London. This contemporary adaptation of passion and vendetta explosively blends grit, fate and claustrophobia, with a streak of dark humour.

Told in a bold physical style with original live music and movement, the play also explores cultural divisions and the power of community.

Truth and oil always come to the surface…
