National Theatre Live: Yerma

Wednesday, November 8, 2017 at 7PM
Josephine Louis Theater, 20 Arts Circle Drive

By Federico García Lorca
Starring Billie Piper
Directed by Simon Stone

The incredible Billie Piper returns in her award-winning role. A young woman is driven to the unthinkable by her desperate desire to have a child in Simon Stone’s radical production of Lorca’s achingly powerful masterpiece. The unmissable theatre phenomenon sold out at the Young Vic and critics call it ‘an extraordinary theatrical triumph’ (The Times) and ‘stunning, searing, unmissable’ (Mail on Sunday). Set in contemporary London, 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 broadcast does not have an interval.
