In Development

To keep quiet and burn is the greatest punishment
we can heap upon ourselves.

Blood Wedding

In spring 2019 Theatr Pena hope to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the Company’s first production, THE HOUSE OF BERNARDA ALBA by Federico Garcia Lorca, with a return to Lorca and stage an ambitious, large ensemble production of BLOOD WEDDING.

Set in Andalusia in the first part of the 20th century, Lorca’s most poetic and powerful play tells the timeless and universal story of forbidden love in an oppressive society.

In partnership with Taliesin Arts Centre Swansea, Galeri Caernarfon and the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama Cardiff, research and development for this production is taking place this May and June supported by the Arts Council of Wales and Newbridge Memo.

Work will concentrate on developing our marketing, audience engagement and access strategies and developing our ideas for the production design, the role of the chorus and the performance style for the play’s songs and dances.
