I want you green. Green wind, green branches. Boat on the ocean. Horse on the mountain.

Written in the summer of 1932 with the Spanish civil war looming, Lorca’s anarchic meditation on the fate of the individual versus society was a prophetic foreshadowing of the violence that would soon both tear his beloved country apart, and lead to his own tragic end.

The mysteries of love and hate are explored against the backdrop of a community gearing up to unleash these elemental forces upon itself, with unstoppable consequences. What is done cannot be undone.

Multiple award-winning director Yaël Farber (Les Blancs, Mies Julie, The Crucible), brings Federico García Lorca’s most famous tragedy to the Young Vic in a new version by Marina Carr.

With Bríd Brennan, Scarlett Brookes, Gavin Drea, Aoife Duffin, Annie Firbank, Olwen Fouéré, Roger Jean Nsengiyumva, Faaiz Mbelizi, Steffan Rhodri, Thalissa Teixeira, David Walmsley
