The Spanish classic, Yerma, comes to the Gate in a bold new production, directed by the Gate’s joint artistic director Natalie Abrahami.
Desperate to begin a family in a land where a barren woman is a wasted woman, Yerma undertakes a journey of discovery only to find that she’s been rendered childless by a secret held deep within her husband’s heart – a secret that will condemn her to a life alone. Haunted by children and controlled by her husband, Yerma’s awakening ends in an unspeakable crime of passion and rage.
