“Stunning, searing, unmissable.” -Mail on Sunday

Federico García Lorca’s epic classic tale of a young married woman struggling to become a mother is reimagined through Mercedes Bátiz-Benét’s biting direction. Yerma is a woman trapped in a loveless marriage and confined by the strict moral code of her community. This acclaimed drama pushes her deeper into desperation that builds to a shocking and staggering climax.

Content Advisory Sexually explicit content, violence, strong language, fog.

Yerma is two hours and twenty-five minutes in length, including two ten minute intermissions.

Program

This version of Yerma was first presented in the Courtyard Theatre, West Yorkshire Playhouse on 5 March 2011.
