NTL Screening: Billie Piper Stars in Yerma
Director Simon Stone reinvents Federico García Lorca's classic Yerma for the modern English stage. Starring the incredible Billie Piper (Penny Dreadful, Doctor Who), Yerma delves into the story of a young woman driven to madness in her attempt to conceive. Her desperation for a child builds with elemental force to a staggering, shocking, climax. Evening Standard called Piper's performance "raw, ferocious and spellbinding" and her portrayal of Yerma delivers "sharply witty, slangily modern updating," said The Daily Mail. She wowed audiences both in her 2016 British debut and in her U.S. premiere the following year. Now Piper takes up the tragic role once more at London's Young Vic theatre. Head to San Jose's Hammer Theatre Center to watch National Theatre Live's high-definition screening of the U.K. stage production.
