Blood Wedding

Karen and I got to go see this wonderful play tonight starring two of our very talented cast members Michael Dix Thomas and Ian Carlsen. The play is entitled Blood Wedding and it has even more ties to our web series. Our Co-Cinematographer Derek Kimball is one of the live musicians performing during the play. Also in the band is Erin Sprinkle who was an extra in the series. Heck, even the super talented director of Blood Wedding Tess Van Horn is an extra in our series! Not sure how we lucked out and got all this tremendous talent to lend a hand to Ragged but we can surely say, this show should not be missed if you live in the greater Portland area. It's playing for two more nights. Don't say we didn't warn you.

Blood Wedding, by Frederico Garcia Lorca

Directed by Tess Van Horn

A lively, committed theater ensemble (who brought Ubu Roi to SPACE last January) comes together again to present Lorca's Blood Wedding, a classic tragedy that is at turns violent, beautiful, strange, and funny. The play deals with the big desires and grudges that can bloom and fester in small towns. Sound familiar?

Original music written and performed by Hersey State, accompanied by members of Plains and Selbyville.

With Amanda Huotari, Peter Brown, Nicholas Schroeder, Pat Mew, Laura Chakravarty Box, Annie Larmon, Dena Riegel, Michael Dix Thomas, Ian Carlsen, Joe Bearor, Amanda Painter, Deirdre Fulton, Andrew Sawyer, and Claire Guyer.

Only three performances of this show:
January 13th at 7:30
January 14th at 8pm
January 15th at 8pm

Tickets only $10.
Reserve now with SPACE.
