Unfortunately due to copyright restrictions this book is not available for sale to customers in the United States of America.

In a remote Spanish village Yerma, a woman of full of life and passion, longs for a child but is unable to conceive. This compelling and elemental tale of a woman's quest for a child taps into some of the most universal themes of theatre - love, passion, sexuality, marriage.

In this adaptation, Pam Gems has stripped the text to the poetic core of Lorca's words in all their epic glory. Vibrant and sweeping, combining elements of dance and song, Yerma is an exhilarating theatrical event.
