"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.

Philadelphia Marathon This Weekend: Street Closures in Queen Village South Street Headhouse District just sent this message out over email and we thought we'd share it since some streets in Queen Village will be closed on Saturday and Sunday: "Just a quick reminder that the Philadelphia Marathon and Half Marathon are this Saturday & Sunday, November 18 & 19, and a portion of both the races run through South Street and the surrounding neighborhood. The annual event attracts thousands of runners and supporters to the area and is a great opportunity for our businesses to greet visitors. The race will close South Street from Front to 7th Street, as well as Front Street from Washington Ave to South and Lombard from 6th to 13th Street on Saturday and Sunday Morning from about 5am- after the final racers clear. (our neighborhood is early in the race, so it will clear earier than later, both days.) The city will enforce “no-parking” regulations for all vehicles in the area. All vehicles along the Philadelphia Marathon route will be relocated starting at 2 a.m." Learn more about the event and street closures here: https://philly.curbed.com/2017/11/15/16656332/philadelphia-marathon-2017-route-street-closures

    HIV criminalization to be explored at community panel
    According to Trevor Hoppe, assistant professor of sociology at the University at Albany, SUNY, "criminalization is never the appropriate response to infectious disease." It's an idea that Hoppe explores in his new book, "Punishing Disease: HIV and the Criminalization of Sickness," which he'll be discussing Nov. 17 at William Way LGBT Community Center.

“I feel calm and content, because I’ve had the first great triumph of my life.” - Lorca, to a friend on the opening night of BLOOD WEDDING in 1933. Read part 4 of LIFE OF LORCA on the development of BLOOD WEDDING.

    OPEN STAGES ONLINE: Life of Lorca, Part 4
    by Walter Bilderback, Production Dramaturg Blood Wedding During a break in the schedule of the touring company La Barraca, Lorca began work on Blood Wedding, which would become his first real theatrical success. Leslie Stainton describes the play as essentially "a long poem, in which passages of verse and prose combine to produce a lyrical portrait of Spain and its people."
