WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
1936. The start of the Spanish Civil War. One of Spain's greatest playwrights - Federico Garcia Lorca - is assassinated. His body was never found... 1 man bragged of his involvement that night. A man who hoped that 5 bullets, 1 dark hillside and 30 years of banned work would have the power to silence Lorca's voice. But his voice lived on. And the silencer becomes the silenced. Federico Garcia Lorca was a Spanish poet, dramatist and theatre director. His fame was born out of his phenomenally successful plays "Blood Wedding" "The House of Bernarda Alba" and "Yerma." and he has been proclaimed "the nearest thing to a pure genius," not only by noted historians but also other figures such as H.G. Wells and Rudyard Kipling.
This event takes place at Brixton East, 100 Barrington Road, London SW9 7JF
