A young woman is driven to the unthinkable by her desperate desire to have a baby, in Simon Stone’s radical production of Lorca’s achingly powerful masterpiece.
Billie Piper’s (Penny Dreadful, Great Britain) Olivier Award-winning performance in Yerma is an unmissable theatre phenomenon. It sold out at the Young Vic with critics calling it ‘shatteringly powerful’ (Independent) and ‘an extraordinary theatrical triumph’ (The Times). Set in contemporary London, Piper’s portrayal of a woman in her thirties struggling to conceive builds with elemental force to a staggering, shocking climax.
