Critic reviews

Impressively poised production of Lorca's tragedy

The Stage

Director/adapter Jorge de Juan does not just know Lorca, he feels him

Broadway World

Leila Demilola as Yerma is exceptional, powerfully portraying the strength and resilience of a character that slowly cracks like dry soil, forgotten and left to waste
