Blood Wedding review

Posted by Khadeejah binti Abdul Halim, Sunday, 16th November 2008 @ 5:07pm

  • Here is the first of our soon to be regular reviews!

    Blood Wedding, directed by Emily Morrison, produced by Louie Corpe, is a must see for anyone worried about the growing rise of knife-crime. The backcountry of Andalusia could not be further from the sprawling metropolis of London, yet the sentiment is a perfect-match.
    The assertive dialogue, anguish and complete sense of injustice from the mother of the bridegroom, Rachel Knight, sets up the plays dark undertones and incessantness of small town mentalities beautifully.
    Sam Brearley portrayal of a love-sick bridegroom was magnificent and Hannah Van-Den-Brul, the bride, excellently portrayed a woman torn between her head and her heart.
    Mbugah’s encapsulation of Leonardo’s fully fledged anger and loathing towards his wife, Katherine Drury, and mother-in-law, Beth Eyre, is superb, to the point of almost being uncomfortable.
    Certain elements of theatrical repertoire worked to excellent aplomb in this production, especially the stage setting, lighting and performances in the woods. The same cannot be said for the whole long drawn out nursery rhyme at the beginning of the show. Good knowledge of Lorca’s work may make this more symbolic, otherwise it just creates confusion. Another criticism was the slight confusion of the role of the maid, Dominique Pelides, who appeared to close and familiar with her employers to represent a mere maid. However, these did not blight an overall good solid performance.
    The darkness of the plays theme was superbly brought into line with excellent small and subtle gestures of comedic genius providing the audience with small outbursts of pure laughter, thus making an evening of fine entertainment. Arrash Rizi, playing the father-of-the-bride, used an accomplished Irish brogue accent to great effect.

Hi,
This is a quick shout out for anyone that is interested in assisting on Drama's term 1 Bloomsbury show. We are currently on the look out for anyone who is interested in props and/or costume. No real previous experience is required (although would be great if you do) although enthusiasm is a must. You will be assisting in the design, making and acquiring of the various items needed to help make the show a success.

The show is on the 13th and 14th of November so you will need to be around in the weeks leading up to this date and preferably for the majority of reading week (3-9 Nov).

If you are interested please let me know, as we would love to have you as part of the team.

1 MONTH TO GO...

E-mail sent by Khadeejah binti Abdul Halim, Monday, 25th August 2008 @ 6:24pm

Hallo All,

So with just a month to go before the doors of UCL re-open, we thought we would email you with a little sneak-preview of what we have planned for Term 1... Most obviously, we hope you like our new email software! The plan is that it should make our emails look much much nicer, and much easier to navigate through. If you have problems opening these emails, let us know! And if you have any comments, then again, let us know!

Anyway, on to the exciting stuff....
