"Lorca learned he was being hunted and hid in the house of a childhood friend, ironically the son of a Falangist official. He stayed there until he was arrested by militia on August 16." Read the final installment of Life of Lorca by BLOOD WEDDING dramaturg Walter Bilderback. #WilmaBloodWedding #Lorca

    OPEN STAGES ONLINE: Life of Lorca, Part 5
    by Walter Bilderback, Production Dramaturg Lorca's Death In the years after Blood Wedding premiered, Lorca finished two more plays set in rural Andalusia: Yerma and The House of Bernarda Alba. While both have elements of stylization, neither has characters like the Moon or the Beggar in Blood Wedding.
