The National Theatre of London continues its season with its acclaimed production of “Yerma” showing in Sedona on Sunday, Sept. 24, at 1 p.m. The Sedona International Film Festival hosts the big screen premiere at its Mary D. Fisher Theatre on National Art House Theater Day.
Billie Piper’s 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 30s struggling to conceive builds with elemental force to a staggering, shocking climax.
The unmissable theater phenomenon is sold-out at the Young Vic and is one of the hottest tickets in London, so the only way for audiences to see the production now is in the cinema.
