Billie Piper plays a woman whose inability to have a child tears her life apart. Simon Stone’s contemporary version of Lorca’s tragedy of yearning and loss won plaudits from audiences and critics alike when it premiered in the Young Vic’s Main House in July 2016, with Billie Piper receiving the Natasha Richardson Award for Best Actress at the 2016 Evening Standard Theatre Awards. Maureen Beattie, Brendan Cowell, John MacMillan and Charlotte Randle return to join Billie in the company.

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.

Our Review of Yerma

5/5

There's no other venue in London quite as adept at reinventing classic texts like the Young Vic. From A Streetcar Named Desire and A View From a Bridge to The Cherry Orchard and The Trial, the Southbank venue consistently produces some of the finest drama in a thoroughly original and contemporary new light.

Monday, 24 July, 2017
Simon Stone’s brilliant adaptation of Yerma is returning to the Young Vic this week, a second chance to see an “utterly unmissable” play. The play won the Best Revival award at this year’ Olivier, with leading lady Billie Piper taking home the award for Best Actress. As the show gears up for a second run, and a worldwide NT Live broadcast, we caught up with actress Thalissa Teixeira to find out just why you shouldn’t miss this play. Photo by Johann Persson....
