Yerma

This Young Vic production, directed by Simon Stone, had been getting raves so I popped along to a local live screening. It’s impossible to not be wowed by Billie Piper’s Her, and the staging is impressive and yet and yet… the contemporary dialogue is a little too predictable. I wonder if Federico García Lorca’s original power is lost in 2017? Baby madness. It happens I guess…
