The Sacramento State Theatre and Dance department presents the famous Spanish playwright Federico Garcia Lorca’s “Blood Wedding.” The play was written in 1933 and based on a story from an actual newspaper article of that time. “Blood Wedding” tells the story of a mother who has lost all the men in her life to the hands of the rival Felix family, with the exception of her youngest son. The mother arranges for him to be married to a young woman; however the bride is involved in a forbidden love affair with a member of the Felix family, Leonardo.

The play stars several of Sac State’s veteran stage actors as well as five fresh faces, all of whom are theater majors. The play is directed by Dr. Roberto D. Pomo, the chair of the theatre and dance department. Pomo is backed by assistant director Randall Cook, a theater and anthropology major, and has been involved in Sac State productions since 1998.

“Blood Wedding” will play from Nov.1-11 in the University Theatre. Show times are at 8 p.m. on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, and 2 p.m. on Sundays. The cost is $12 general admission and $7 for students, alumni and seniors. Tickets are available though the Sac State ticket office.
