National Theatre's Acclaimed Play YERMA Coming to Theatres
National Theatre's acclaimed production of YERMA hits the big screen September 21 & 23. Cineplex theatres across Canada, including in Toronto, will broadcast the live transmission of Federico Garcia Lorca's play, directed by Simon Stone and starring Doctor Who's Billie Piper.
The incredible Billie Piper returns in her award-winning role. A young woman is driven to the unthinkable by her desperate desire to have a child in Simon Stone's radical production of Lorca's achingly powerful masterpiece. The unmissable theatre phenomenon sold out at The Young Vic and critics call it 'an extraordinary theatrical triumph' (The Times) and 'stunning, searing, unmissable' (Mail on Sunday). Billie Piper's lead performance is described as 'spellbinding' (The Evening Standard), 'astonishing' (iNews) and 'devastatingly powerful' (The Daily Telegraph). Set in contemporary London, Piper's portrayal of a woman in her thirties desperate to conceive builds with elemental force to a staggering, shocking, climax.
