As part of her ongoing post-show Q&A series, on Friday 9 November 2018, Mates co-founder Terri Paddock will quiz the director and cast of the Spanish Theatre Company’s new production of Lorca classic Yerma. Got any questions?

After The Swallow earlier this year, I’m delighted to return to the Cervantes Theatre, London’s home of Spanish and Latin American writing, to chair two post-show Q&AS: Ay, Carmela! in September and Lorca classic Yerma in November.

The Cervantes Theatre, and its resident Spanish Theatre Company under artistic director Jorge de Juan, are renowned experts on the work of Spain’s great twentieth-century dramatist Federico García Lorca.

After acclaimed revivals of The House of Bernarda Alba and Blood Wedding, their presentation of Lorca’s Rural Trilogy now concludes with de Juan’s new staging of Yerma.

“When, my child, are you going to come?”

Lorca’s 1936 “tragic poem” centres on a woman with a desperate desire to become a mother. Under the pressures of social convention, she is driven to commit a horrific crime. The piece is adapted and directed by Jorge de Juan.

For the Yerma Q&A on Friday 9 November 2018, I’ll be joined by artistic director Jorge de Juan and other members of the company.
