Billie Piper’s (Penny Dreadful, Great Britain) Olivier Award-winning performance in Yerma is broadcast live to cinemas.

A young woman is driven to the unthinkable by her desperate desire to have a baby, in Simon Stone’s radical production of Lorca’s achingly powerful masterpiece.

Set in contemporary London, Piper’s portrayal of a woman in her thirties struggling to conceive builds with elemental force to a staggering, shocking climax.

The unmissable theatre phenomenon is sold-out at the Young Vic and critics call it ‘shatteringly powerful’ (Independent) and ‘an extraordinary theatrical triumph’ (The Times).

Please note that this broadcast does not have an interval, and that the performance contains strobe lighting.
