Billie Piper (Penny Dreadful, Doctor Who) returns to her award winning role in Federico García Lorca’s achingly powerful masterpiece.

In writer-director Simon Stone’s radical production set in contemporary London, this heartbreaking story tells of a young woman driven to the unthinkable by her desperate desire to have a child.

The unmissable theatre phenomenon sold out at London’s Young Vic, receiving universal critical accolades for Piper’s “earth-quaking” (Guardian) performance in its first run in 2016. Her portrayal of Lorca’s heroine built with elemental force to a staggering, shocking climax – a performance so intense that the production could only return for an extremely limited one month run in 2017, when this NT Live screening was filmed live.

** Please note that the performance of Yerma includes strobe lighting.
