In Brooklyn it’s baseball and in Spain it’s bullfighting and bullfighting inspires the same fierce passion in every true Spaniard that baseball inspires only in a fan from Brooklyn. One of the most popular matadors of modern time was born in Brooklyn but the fact that a matador flirts with death at every pass of his cape makes the bullring the most dramatic arena in the world and the most dramatic story of a bullring is this play Blood And Sand.

Blood And Sand is a tempestuous drama of life by night and death in the afternoon. It is a love story of a boy who fights his way from obscurity to fame and of a girl whose loyalty never wavers when gold and glory throw a shadow over love.
