National Theatre Live: Yerma
Saturday, August 11 - Monday, August 13, 2018
Billie Piper’s (Penny Dreadful, Great Britain) Olivier Award-winning performance in Yerma is now broadcast live to cinemas!
A young woman is driven to the unthinkable by her desperate desire to have a baby, in Simon Stone’s radical production of Lorca’s achingly powerful masterpiece. Set in contemporary London, Piper’s portrayal of a woman in her thirties struggling to conceive builds with elemental force to a staggering, shocking climax.
‘An extraordinary theatrical triumph.’ – The Times
