by Federico García Lorca Translated by Carmen Zapata and Michael Dewell.


The presentation of Lorca’s magnificent Rural Trilogy at the Cervantes Theatre ends with Yerma, “a tragic poem” of a woman with a desperate desire for motherhood, who under the pressures of social convention, is driven to commit a horrific crime.

Critic reviews

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

London Box Office

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

Broadway World

Impressively poised production of Lorca's tragedy
