Celebrated Spanish dramatist Federico García Lorca's 1932 folk tragedy is deftly pulled into sharp focus in this dark and seductive re-imagining.
Think it'll get better? You know it's a lie.

What happens when it's too late to escape - then you open the door and run?

Lorca's classic tragedy is set in modern day London.
