YERMA–see this!!!

This is a head’s up to see YERMA by Lorca in a National Theatre Live screening at a Cineplex screen near you September 21 and 23.

It’s an updating of Yerma, Lorca’s classic tale about a young married woman desperate to get pregnant and the lengths she and her husband go to make this happen. She is surrounded by young women having children so her yearning is intense.

Yerma is played by Billie Piper, who apparently is big in Doctor Who. I don’t watch it but have seen Billie Piper on stage and she is the bomb. Just brilliant.

The show is playing in a sold-out run at the Young Vic in London. It’s being shown at a Cineplex hear you under the auspices of National Theatre Live, Sept. 21 and 23.

The reviews have been stellar. You don’t want to miss this.
