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.

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.
