National Theatre Live in HD:
Simon Stone’s Yerma

A Young Vic production by Simon Stone after Federico García Lorca Directed by Simon Stone.

High-Definition Broadcasts from National Theatre, London. Presented in partnership with the Michigan Theater.

Lorca’s 1934 play about a farmer’s wife broken by her longing for a child is modernized for the 21st century in Simon Stone’s radical update. Here Yerma is a hard-driving journalist who has settled down with her boyfriend in a gentrifying part of London. Billie Piper’s lead performance as a young woman driven to the unthinkable by her desperate desire to have a child is spellbinding, astonishing, and devastating. Set in contemporary London, Piper builds with elemental force to a staggering, shocking climax.

Winner of the 2017 Olivier Award for Best Actress for this performance, Piper is “fearless, furious, wildly funny — then utterly destroyed, as she realizes that neither yoga nor bravado can overcome the vulnerability of her own body.” (TimeOut London)

 

Please note that the performance of Yerma includes strobe lighting.

The performance is 2 hours and 35 minutes with no intermission.
