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 include an intermission, and that the performance contains strobe lighting.

About National Theatre Live:

National Theatre Live is the National Theatre’s groundbreaking project to broadcast world-class theatre to cinemas in the UK and internationally. National Theatre Live launched in June 2009 with a broadcast of the National Theatre production of Phèdre with Helen Mirren. Since then, National Theatre Live has broadcast more than forty other productions live, from both the National Theatre and from other theatres in the United Kingdom. Broadcasts have been experienced by over 5.5 million people in over 2,000 venues around the world.

Though each broadcast is filmed in front of a live audience in the theatre, cameras are carefully positioned throughout the auditorium to ensure that cinema audiences get the ‘best seat in the house’ view of each production. Where these cameras are placed is different for each broadcast, to make sure that cinema audiences enjoy the best possible experience every time.
