“Billie Piper is earth-quaking in the title role.” — Susannah Clapp, Guardian

“An arena for Billie Piper to deliver a performance of career-defining horror…fearless, furious, wildly funny.” — Johan Persson, Time Out London

A young woman is driven to the unthinkable by her desperate desire to have a child in Simon Stone’s radical production of Federico García Lorca’s achingly powerful masterpiece. Set in contemporary London, Piper’s portrayal of a woman in her thirties desperate to conceive builds with elemental force to a staggering, shocking climax. Critics call it “an extraordinary theatrical triumph” (The Times) and “stunning, searing, unmissable” (Mail on Sunday). Billie Piper’s lead performance is described as “spellbinding’ (Evening Standard), “astonishing” (iNews) and “devastatingly powerful” (Daily Telegraph). DCP digital.
