Billie Piper will take the title role as Australian director Simon Stone presents a new version of Lorca's Yerma, his first original work for the UK.
The masterpiece of one of the great Spanish playwrights, Yerma tells the story of a woman whose inability to have a child tears her life apart. Her fierce desire to be a mother is met with painful indifference by her husband - provoking a desperate reaction. Simon Stone writes and directs a new contemporary version of this tragedy of yearning and loss as his first original work in the UK.
