NT Live: Yerma 15

NT Live: Yerma


Director. Simon Stone

Billie Piper reprises her award-winning role as a woman teetering on the brink of self-destruction in Federico Garcia Lorca's achingly painful tragedy, broadcast live from the stage of the Young Vic. Reset from rural Spain to present-day London, Yerma centres on a successful journalist called Her, who excitedly moves into a new apartment with her partner John and discloses that she hungers to become a mother. The couple tries enthusiastically for a child but fails to conceive.
