Blood Wedding: A production of “Blood Wedding” by Federico Garcia Lorca will be staged by Theatre Roanoke College in the Olin Hall Theater Nov. 17-19 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets for the general public are $7 and $5 for seniors. They can be purchased by calling 540-375-2333 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. The synopsis reads: “After decades of bloodshed, there seems to be peace in this rural Spanish countryside. The Bride was promised to the Bridegroom. The wedding day arrives, and all seems to be right for the couple, but there is another who would steal her away. This love triangle reaches a fever pitch as they abscond into the nearby forest and must confront the realities of their passion, their hatred, and their mortality. The play will be performed in both English and Spanish with subtitles.”
