The first in a limited series of encore screenings from the archives of National Theatre Live.
Filmed live on stage at the Young Vic in 2017 starring the incredible Billie Piper (Penny Dreadful, Great Britain) in her Evening Standard Best Actress award-winning role.
A young woman is driven to the unthinkable by her desperate desire to have a child in Simon Stone’s radical production of 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.
