Official Yerma Trailer with Billie Piper - Young Vic | National Theatre Collection

Billie Piper won an Evening Standard Best Actress award for her performance in Simon Stone’s radical production of Lorca’s achingly powerful masterpiece, Yerma. A young woman is driven to the unthinkable by her desperate desire to have a child in Lorca’s classic tragedy about honour, family and female empowerment. Set in contemporary London, Billie Piper’s portrayal of a woman in her thirties desperate to conceive builds with elemental force to a staggering, shocking, climax. The theatre phenomenon sold out at the Young Vic and critics called it ‘an extraordinary theatrical triumph’ (The Times) and ‘stunning, searing, unmissable’ (Mail on Sunday). Billie Piper’s lead performance was described as ‘spellbinding’ (The Evening Standard), ‘astonishing’ (iNews) and ‘devastatingly powerful’ (The Daily Telegraph). Yerma was broadcast by National Theatre Live from the Young Vic Theatre in London in 2017. It is available for educational establishments to watch with the National Theatre Collection. #NationalTheatreCollection #Yerma #YoungVic #NationalTheatre -- The National Theatre Collection makes the best of British Theatre available worldwide to libraries, schools, universities and the wider education sector.
