    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.

"The result: a more inclusive park by many accounts that, while not totally immune to societal ills, is an example of an approach that Balfelt says is about quality, time and trust."

    In Copenhagen, a "People's Park" Design Includes Dark Corners
    In the center of Nørrebro, a relatively diverse northern neighborhood in otherwise homogenous Copenhagen, lies a park the size of a small town square. Despite its unimpressive size, Folkets Park, the People's Park, is a square plot of grassy land that has been contested for decades.
