YERMA. ADJECTIVE: UNCULTIVATED, UNSOWN, UNTILLED, BARREN, WASTE
 
Desperate to begin a family in a land where a barren woman is a wasted woman, Yerma undertakes a journey of discovery only to find that she’s been rendered childless by a secret held deep within her husband’s heart -  secret that wil condemn her to a life alone. Haunted by children and controlled by her husband, Yerma’s awakening ends in an unspeakable crime of passion and revenge.

This is a Gate Theatre production in association with Hull Truck Theatre.

“Natalie Abrahami’s  production has an innate confidence that lends the evening a persuasive aura of integrity and intensity.”
The Telegraph

“Ruth Sutcliffe’s design, with its sand floor on which sits the white, underused wedding-night mattress, is artfully simple. Mark Howland’s lighting rises and falls equisitely, the corrugated backdrop lights up like illuminated earth.”
