Yerma

Yerma

Yerma is an original adaptation after Federico Garcia Lorca’s play, that tells the story of a woman struggling with infertility in a contemporary setting.

Overview

Yerma, an illustrator for children’s books, slowly comes to terms with her situation through a series of short encounters with her family, her friends, and her husband, Juan. She undergoes several cycles of IVF treatment, but to no avail, and as the years pass, Yerma must accept the reality of potentially never having the chance to carry her own child.

Desperate and increasingly agitated, Yerma embodies the internal battles between desires and conventions and modern-day attitudes toward infertility. This is a multimedia production including projections, poetry and songs and the inclusion of a poignant and powerful monologue by Jessica Hepburn, one of the UK’s leading patient voices of fertility, infertility, the science of making babies and the modern family.
