27 Aug Yerma
Thursday 27th August
La Mercè Culture Centre, 19:30 h
Yerma, as Federico García Lorca repeatedly stated, is a tragedy with a single theme: the barren woman. Throughout the dramatic times, Yerma desperately struggles with this reality, which is causing her to become increasingly conflicted. The final resolution — the death of her husband — is the last defence of her impossible dream.
Noite Bohemia performs one of their more-contemporary recent plays about how hard life was for women in the early 20th century.
