Reviews:

***** Islington and Hackney Gazette  **** SO SO GAY **** BACKSTAGE PASS **** PLAYS TO SEE

“Bronagh Lagan’s Blood Wedding does full justice to his work with a production that overflows with emotion, compels with its portrayal of families rent asunder and captivates with its language.”

“Blood Wedding is a difficult piece to stage – so much can go wrong in any production that’s an all-through 100 minutes, never mind one with this level of ambition – but Aria Entertainment pull it off spectacularly well.”

“With direction by Bronagh Lagan, the storyline follows that of love and betrayal, which this production superlatively captivates making for an emotional thought provoking piece.”

“But it is a testament to the richness of the work that neither the off-broadway production that I saw in Spanish nor the intense and intimate one that I saw seven years ago under a pub in Baron’s Court prepared me for the overwhelmingly awe-inspiring execution of vision by Bronagh Lagan in this triumph at The Courtyard Theatre in Hoxton.”

“Richly layered and sizzling with seductive, sexual energy, this production is a feast for the senses, and for the mind, it will leave the theatregoer’s soul rent in two by the end.”
