What does it take to break a woman?

Yerma and her husband, living happily married, must suddenly face the fact that they are unable to have a child. Their tragic situation quickly leads Yerma in ultimate desperation to a dark climax in which everything will change, forever. Federico Garcia Lorca's searing tale of a woman battling the stigma of infertility in a small community bristles with urgency and injustice. Translated into a semi-modern setting, this production presents a wild rendering of Lorca's claustrophobic original, drawing in the elements to create a visual spectacle that brings to the fore the pagan undertones of his script. An essential piece of theatre exploring cultural expectations, the gender binary, and what it means to search for new life as a woman and as a human, Yerma promises to be both a harrowing and an inspiring watch.
