Yerma by Federico Garcia Lorca
in a translation by Michael Dewell and Carmen Zapata
The tragic tale of a woman's desperate yearning for a child that leads her to murder. Infused with poetic imagery and song this is one of Lorca's best known plays, written in 1934.
Federico Garcia Lorca (1898 - 1936) is, with Cervantes, the best known figure in Spanish literature. His plays Blood Wedding, Yerma and The House of Bernarda Alba are often referred to as a 'rural trilogy' and all three are being broadcast together on Radio 3 in March 2014.
