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

Please note that this broadcast does not have an interval, and that the performance contains strobe lighting.
