NTLive: Yerma

Event Main Yerma


The incredible Billie Piper (Penny Dreadful, Great Britain) returns in her award-winning role in this National Theatre Live screening of Yerma. A young woman is driven to the unthinkable by her desperate desire to have a child in Simon Stone's radical production of Federico Garcia Lorca's achingly powerful masterpiece. The theater phenomenon sold out at The Young Vic, and critics call it "an extraordinary theatrical triumph" (The Times) and "stunning, searing, unmissable" (Mail on Sunday). Billie Piper's lead performance is described as "spellbinding" (The Evening Standard), "astonishing" (iNews), and "devastatingly powerful" (The Daily Telegraph). Piper's portrayal of a woman in her thirties desperate to conceive builds with elemental force to a staggering, shocking climax.

Please note that this production has strobe lighting. Performed with no intermission.
