Yerma — Billie Piper (National Theatre Live)
Director Simon Stone reinvents Federico García Lorca’s classic, Yerma, for the modern English stage–which The Times describes as an “extraordinary theatrical triumph.”
Starring the incredible Billie Piper (Penny Dreadful, Doctor Who), Yerma delves into the story of a young woman driven to madness in her attempt to conceive. Her desperation for a child builds with elemental force to a staggering, shocking, climax.
Piper’s performance is “raw, ferocious, spellbinding” (Evening Standard). And her portrayal of Yerma is one of “all-consuming despair,” with “sharply witty, slangily modern updating” (The Daily Mail).
