In Lorca’s 20th-century classic drama, a young couple’s engagement rekindles buried passions and threatens a deep-seated blood feud in a small rural town. Newly translated by Governor-General’s Award-winning playwright Guillermo Verdecchia, and reset with the rhythms of rural Ontario, this story of primal and prophetic violence between families retains its dramatic urgency. (
