‘Faith is the bird who feels the light when the dawn is still dark’ – Rabindranath Tagore
From the outside, Yerma and Juan have a fulfilling life. As years of childless marriage turn into despair, ridicule and unyielding sorrow, Yerma’s yearning for motherhood grows to a blinding obsession.
Originally written in 1934 and forming the second part of Lorca’s Rural Trilogy, Yerma explores the immutable plight of a young woman desperate to conceive, and the bitterness that births when disillusionment and dreams are slowly crushed within the passage of time.
