Get tickets -> Yerma
Adapted & Translated by Melinda Lopez Based on the play by Federico García Lorca Directed by Katja Rivera
West Coast premiere! Set in Southern California in the 1930s, Yerma is Lorca’s lyrical exploration of infertility, feminism, and obsession. Yerma is a woman who deeply loves her husband Juan, but she longs above all to have a child. In this darkly poetic fable, Yerma’s all-consuming desire propels her into a collision with the universe that is urgent and terrible in scope.
