NT Live: Yerma
The incredible Billie Piper (Penny Dreadful, Great Britain) returns in her Evening Standard Best Actress award-winning role.
A young woman is driven to the unthinkable by her desperate desire to have a child in Simon Stoneâ€™s radical production of Lorcaâ€™s achingly powerful masterpiece. The unmissable theatre phenomenon sold out at the Young Vic and critics call it â€˜an extraordinary theatrical triumphâ€™ (The Times) and â€˜stunning, searing, unmissableâ€™ (Mail on Sunday). Billie Piperâ€™s lead performance is described as â€˜spellbindingâ€™ (The Evening Standard), â€˜astonishingâ€™ (iNews) and â€˜devastatingly powerfulâ€™ (The Daily Telegraph).
Set in contemporary London, Piperâ€™s portrayal of a woman in her thirties desperate to conceive builds with elemental force to a staggering, shocking, climax.
