This achingly painful story of a young woman desperate to become a mother expresses the anguish of a society battling to free itself from its past.  

Stone’s new version of Lorca’s masterpiece re-imagines the story for London today.

Back for a limited run.

“Piper is devastatingly good in this bold new version... Riveting... Piper is on raw, ferocious, spellbinding form. ”

Henry Hitchings (Evening Standard)

“Piper: Extraordinary theatrical triumph... full-blooded ... sensational... marks her transition into a major dramatic artist. ”

Kate Maltby (The Times)

“A shatteringly powerful reinvention of a familiar classic... A central performance of devastating emotional force... Gutting. ”

Paul Taylor (The Independent)

“In one fell swoop, Stone has remade Lorca... Piper is earth-quaking... Beattie is perfectly acerbic... Teixeira dazzles. ”

Susannah Clapp (The Observer)

“Lives up to the accolades... Piper never seems to put a foot wrong... Very, very funny until it doesn’t become funny any more.”

West End Whingers

“Brilliantly effective... Devastating central performance... Turns it into a challenging play for today... Piper is superb. ”

Sarah Crompton (What's On Stage, Guardian)

“One hell of a punch to the gut thanks to Piper’s mighty performance.... Becomes something colossal and tragic. ”

Tim Bano (The Stage, Time Out)

“A fiercely modern story that’s electrified by Piper’s central role... a performance of career-defining horror... something else.”

Alice Saville (Time Out, Independent)

“An evening of heart-wrenching, naturalistic emotion... confirming she is one of Britain’s most exciting stage actresses. ”

Other newspaper reviewers

“Piper vaults to the top rank of British theatre actresses... The acting has its own quicksilver brilliance. ”

Matt Wolf (Arts Desk)

“Radically modern... An electrifying theatrical experience is performed with hyper-realism by a superb cast, especially Piper. ”

Neil Norman (Express, The Stage)

“Stone’s Yerma carries the ring of conviction and his production is highly assured... Splendidly acted by the entire cast. ”

Michael Arditti (Express)

“A breathtakingly uninhibited performance... registers every phase of the character’s mounting despair with stark clarity. ”

Michael Billington (The Guardian)
